Details

Super-smooth frets with your Dremel or Foredom! Rubberized ceramic wheels give your fret jobs that mirror shine and ultra-smooth feel players love.

Much faster and easier than hand polishing, the complete set includes fine and extra-fine wheels (5 each), with a 1/8"-shank mandrel.

Mount the wheel and mandrel in your Dremel, Dremel Flex Shaft or Foredom handpiece.

Lightly groove the edge of the wheel with a small round file. The slim handpiece makes it easy to hold the grooved wheel on a crowned fret, to gently polish it to a smooth shine.

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 and Fret Cutters. 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.

Fret polishing

By Big Jon from Tennessee
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, August 13, 2010


Fastest smoothest fret polishing I have ever used. I allready had the dremel with the extention snake thang. Be sure to tape the neck first.

Essential (not for everybody)

If you do a lot of instruments and make a living at it, these help not only speed up the process but (in the right hands) insure spectacular results. (Caution, because it can heat frets up real hot: work with delicate care not to heat them to the point of melting glue or loosening up; effectively ruining leveling work). With acquired skill, these are a great finish and can skillfully be used with a Dremel/flex shaft for crowning. I use these all the time.
