Fret Polishing Wheels

About This Item

Super-smooth frets with your Dremel or Foredom! Rubberized ceramic wheels give your fret jobs that mirror shine and ultra-smooth feel players love.

Much faster and easier than hand polishing, the complete set includes fine and extra-fine wheels (5 each), with a 1/8"-shank mandrel.

Mount the wheel and mandrel in your Dremel or Foredom handpiece.

Lightly groove the edge of the wheel with a small round file. The slim handpiece makes it easy to hold the grooved wheel on a crowned fret, to gently polish it to a smooth shine.

Fret polishing wheels make quick work of shining up frets

I thought that I would "try" these. I am convinced. really easy to use in conjunction with StewMac fingerboard guards.

Should be called "Fret Wrecking Wheels"

Wow, took me a while to undo the mess these made of my frets. Nice idea, though.

Works.

These work, but really didn't feel worth it. High heat, but less control than the fret erasers, without any benefit I can see.

they work, but i did not notice a vast difference between fine and extra fine.

They do work

It is easy to take off more material than intended using these on a Dremel. I still prefer #600 then #1500, then steel wool for polishing. If these were available with crowning profiles, they could really speed up that process.

really makes frets shine!

These wheels work great once all the fret file grooves have been eliminated. I probably should have purchased the green wheels also. Be careful! pressing hard with the wheel will definitely shine the frets, but will also generate heat quicker than you might imagine, which can soften glue if you use any glue in your fret slots. Also I found that pressing the rotating wheel against a file didn't necessarily put a cove in the wheel, but eroded the file teeth! I think they are well worth it.

Great for fret polishing, don't last long

I have used these and the green ones for several years and I like them but the reality of it is that they don't seem to go more than one fret polishing of an entire fretboard though they load up with black oxide but otherwise they're great

Polishing Frets

I bought the complete outfit. They made it much easier and less time than the fret erasers. But be very careful. It is very easy to go to far an create an uneven fret. You'll find a big improvement in the tonal quality in your instrument!

These wheels make polishing frets quick and easy. Puts a polish on them that steel wool alone just can't touch. Be sure to mask off the fingerboard when using them because they will mar the fingerboard.
