Details

The Fret Dressing Stick features interchangeable sanding belts for removing the scratches left by leveling and crowning files.

File a notch in the end of the stick to conform to the crown of the fretwire, and with the finer-grit belts it becomes a great tool for fret polishing.

This 6" x 1/4" (152.40mm x 6.35mm) tool is spring-loaded to keep pressure on the sanding belt. A flip of your thumb rotates the belt for a fresh sanding surface.

The Dressing Stick isn't only for fret work. It's great for leveling drip marks in lacquer finishes or super glue touch-ups, for sanding inlays, for fine scroll work, and more.

Great for dressing the frets

By Ricki Leigh from Pennsylvania

I had dressed all my fret jobs by hand using sandpaper and a small wood block. This Sanding stick worked out so well I don't know why I didn't get it sooner. Thanks Stewmac

Love this cheap little tool. Be even better if the papers grit # was clearly written on them as my eyes can't easily tell the difference.

I bought one and will buy at least two more. Excellent product and if you make a small notch on the stick's tip it's perfect for dressing frets.

Works like a champ not only for dressing frets, but is extremely helpful in tight curves like mandolin scrolls.

Works very well

It works great. Simple yet effective. If there was one constructive comment, it would be to make a version that has a concave end, to somewhat match different fret radii. But as is, works great.

On my all-star fretting team

It doesn't look like it can, but this is on my top 3 tool when it comes to fret dressing. Must have! One of the best bang for the bucks.

Works good for all kinds of sanding applications. I use them a lot for fret dressing, saddle work, nut work, and refinishing. I sand down the ends for different angles and to shape for fret dressing.- MAtt Dreher

Okay Tool

Does a good job. Description says you can file a notch in the end to conform to the crown of the fret. Would be better if they were sold with a groove in them just like the fret files. As cheap as it is there could be a set for narrow, medium and wide for $10 to $15. Would be worth it.

Nice!

I love these sanding sticks. You can get all around the fret easily. No more using your fingernail and plain sandpaper to get the edges. A lot more control with these sticks. I have 4 of them. It's a great price too.
