fret calculator. just google it.
What are you using for fretwire? There's nothing mentioned in your list of materials, and how are you fitting them, glue, hammer?

The guy that run klangbox.at uses old bicycle spokes.

G.I. wire, Galvanized Iron wire, I think they have the composition like barb-wires and cyclone wires. The first guitar I build I used copper wire from thick co-axial cables, but they wear very fast, but G.I. wires are more resilient.
