Fret Puller

About This Item

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. 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.

I can't imagine removing frets using any other tool or method. Made short work of fret removal and pulled the frets out as clean as could be expected.

2nd time's a charm

The first set I received had slightly mis-ground jaws, which is why I couldn't give them a 5-star rating. But the replacement set was sent out to me as soon as I mentioned the problem to customer service, and those were flawless. Great tool. Not cheap, but I don't need to spend my time hunting down the right pair of cutters to modify. To me, they're worth the money.

Great Fret Puller!

Just purchased the Fret Puller. It works. Took the first few frets to really get the hang of it, learning the whole "walking the fret out" thing. After those first few, I blew past the others. Seemed very well built, nothing flimsy or weak about it. It's pricey, and shipping aint cheap either, but I figure I'll use this constantly when I have my own repair/custom shop so it's a worthwhile investment!

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.
