Deadblow Fretting Hammer

More efficient no-bounce fret installation. We fitted this durable hammer with a machined brass convex face especially for fretwork.

The shock-absorbing shot-filled head won't bounce like a regular hammer, so it transfers more energy directly to the fret. This helps seat the wire more firmly, with fewer hammer blows and less chance of the fret springing back.

Overall length: 9-1/2" (241.3mm)
Striking surface diameter: 13/16" (20.64mm)
Weight: 1/2 lb. (.2268 kg)

Durable steel-reinforced handle.

Essential for Fretting
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

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.

Not just a fret hammer

Used it on a couple of refrets. Works fine, but i just prefer my cheapo, domed bottom, craft & jewellery, polished steel hammer. Still trying to figure out the avantages of the 'dead blow' action. A bit gimmicky. Now i use it as a mild hammer for dowels, pins, tapping nuts off, and stuff...

Does the intended job nicely. I wouldn't recommend using it for anything else, as it seems a bit delicate. But, it does the job like I said.
