‎Dear list,

I don't use water, but I wipe a drop of string oil over each length of fret gut 
I am going to put on the neck of whatever lute or guitar instrument‎.

Greetings,

Joachim

   I actually never thought of it...but it is a good idea as they would
   tighten up upon drying.

   Does anyone else dampen their fret gut with water before tying them? I
   dip my fingers into water and run the string through them. Then let
   them sit a little to soften just a tad. If needed,  I rewet  the part
   that is going to make the knot so that it is flexible. I tie the fret
   on below where it is going to end up, and allow it to dry before
   pulling into position.
   I don't play lute enough to change frets much, but I have found the
   wetting to be useful.

   I want to know how you tied them on in the first place.  You must have
   really strong fingers.
