Our well-balanced dual-face hammer has become a standard tool for fretwork.
The aluminum head is threaded for two replaceable striking surfaces: a low-dent plastic flat face with smooth edges, and a brass convex face that's radiused for installing frets. Sturdy hardwood handle.
Head striking surface diameter 7/8" (22.23mm)
Overall length of the head 2-3/4" (69.85mm)
Handle length 9-1/2" (241.30mm)
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.
