This tool is just for pulling, not cutting, frets. Its spring-loaded flush-ground 1/2" jaws are small enough for a better bite.

It helps reduce wood chip-out, and does a better job of getting under frets and lifting them than wider cutters. Comfortable rubber-coated handles.

Chip-free fret jobs: try the Fret Puller with our Chip Stoppers, and forever change the way you remove frets.

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.

Twice Shy

This is the 2nd puller I've purchased from SM. The first was bought back in the 80's, and it had the same defect that this new one has: It wasn't ground down enough to make BOTH jaws sharp enough to go under the fret. One side will go under the fret, but the other side just blunts up against the fret and wants to slip over the top of it when you squeeze. I'm sure they're not all bad, but who ever is grinding these needs to slow down and finish the job.

These fret pullers are great but the cost is on the steep side.

Comfortable, controllable

I make or alter most of my tools in one way or another to fit me. The fret puller set I got recently were comfortable and controllable. No need to alter them. Easy to travel with

I was removing the frets on a 1967 fender coronado using a bigger puller than this, and found it hard not to get under the very worn down frets, also it was chipping too much so got these and they have been excellent, less chipping and good results
