Fret Slot Cleaning Tool

Take it from Dan Erlewine, "A fret won't seat well if its slot isn't clean!" We developed this tool to effectively scrape away wood chips and old glue, for better fret seating.

The Fret Slot Cleaning Tool comes with 2 chisel blades. Additional replacement blades are sold separately.

This 5-1/2" Fret Slot Cleaning Tool has a comfortable handle with a metal collet, and a replaceable hooked .019" thin square-edged chisel that gets into the corners of the slots on bound fretboards. It can be used to scrape the bottom and the wall of the fret slot, and when the tool is held with both hands for control, it pries up dried glue.

The Fret Slot Cleaning Tool is included in this money-saving set:

Great tool

Great tool which does what it's intended for perfectly. Very good price and helps a lot with cleaning fret slots before installation. 5 stars as it does exactly as it should

Should have bought one earlier

This tool has been a lifesaver on my most recent fretboard. After binding and radiusing, it is imperative to remove all the glue and sawdust from the slots to get a proper fret seat. Razor blades and X-Acto knives work, but this makes short work of it. I agree with taking it slow. Trying to remove too much at once could chip the board. The blade fits a large X-Acto handle, so just buy the blade if you have one of those lying around.

Every builder needs one. Price is right so why not.
