Jaws fret presses solve every fretting situation. Pressing frets is so widely used in guitar production because it saves time and gives consistent results.
Pressed-in frets are less likely to have loose ends and uneven heights, because there's none of the recoil produced by hammer blows. Both Jaws fret presses combine to cover any position on the fretboard.
Jaws fret presses are designed to work with our grooved brass Fret Press Inserts. The inserts fit over the fretwire and are interchangeable to match popular fretwire radii.
