StewMac Fret Cutter

About This Item

Spend less time filing fret ends!
This is the best tool for trimming the ends off fretwire.

A Stewart-MacDonald exclusive, our custom-made steel cutter has improved features you won't find on hardware store nippers.

The jaws are specially hardened for fret work, and they're profiled and flush-ground to cut the wire close to the fretboard. The result is a cleaner cut without pulling the wire, so you'll need to do less filing. Longer rubber-coated handles allow better access to the frets over a guitar body.

1" (25.4mm) jaw width, 8" (203.20mm) length.

Essential for Fretting
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

I used them to trim the fret ends and had minimal dressing to do afterwards!

Superior Tool

I have used a pair of wire cutters for cutting my frets for years, but I will tell anyone that having the right tool for the job is the key to speeding up the work.

This cutter cuts through the fret like butter, leaving a clean end, which requires just a few strokes with a file to finish the job.

Excellent tool I wish I had bought years ago.

Got this since 2013 and have been using it on uncountable number of fretworks, it still remains sharp and cut nicely. Had tried similar product in the market but not any other can be compared both on the hardness of material and the angle of the cutting edge. Apart from cutting fret, this fret cutter could be used on many other tasks, I should say, there are lots of trade secret behind. Highly recommended.

I used this tool for the first time a few days ago and was happy with the results. The fret wire is cut very close to the fretboard. I used this for an ukulele.

Indispensable! I use these for everything. Haven't actually nipped a fret in years. Watch out for your fingers!

Pdroblem " you say"

the only problem we have ever had with a cutter

a new cutter just like this chipped the first time we cut a fret

I called Stew Mac and they sent us another one that same day.

It has worked now for 5 years and we just ordered another one due to our increase in use.

I bought this to replace a much cheaper version I had for years, which was made of very soft steel. This tool is extremely well made, heavy duty, and a pleasure to use.
