Fret Crimper

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.

Overall length: 7" (178mm)
Jaw width: 13/32" (10.24mm)
Comfortable rubber-coated handles.

This unique tool is based on a technique developed by repairman Frank Ford.

The Fret Crimper is included in our money-saving Fret Tang Tool Set along with the Fret Barber, our handy tool for quickly trimming the barbs on longer lengths of fretwire.

We recommend our book FretWork Step By Step for details on the technique of compression fretting.


Trade Secrets!

When frets don't fit the slot, resize the fret tang

This week, Dan Erlewine's pumping iron (nickel steel, actually!) He's showing how to bulk up your skinny fretwire and slim down your fat fretwire.

Saved my life man. This is a very handy tool to have around your shop. I cut fret slots with a faulty saw and they were just wide enough to not accept the frets properly this tool got me out of trouble.

It does the job perfectly and saves hours refretting. Doesn't look sturdy enough for the money.
