Crimps the tang to fit oversize fret slots. Hardened steel jaws press slight scallops into a fret tang to fit an oversize slot. Works on a variety of slot widths — simply vary the pressure as needed. This unique tool is based on a technique developed by repairman Frank Ford.
Works on stainless frets, too! All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.
