Refret Saw and Fret Slot Cleaning Tool Set

About This Item

For easier refretting! Two specialized tools for scraping away wood chips and old glue, in ONE money-saving set!

New frets won't seat correctly until the old fret slots are clean! These unique tools are needed to loosen and remove packed wood dust and old glue, and deepen shallow fret slots.

Refret Saw has two slim .020"-thick blades—one cuts on the pull stroke, the other on the push. Also sold separately

Fret Slot Cleaning Tool has a thin, hooked, square-edged chisel that's ideal for getting into the corners of the slots on bound fretboards and pries up dried glue. Also sold separately

Additional widths are available for the Refret Saw.

Additional fret slot cleaning chisel blades are sold separately.

First time using LED lights as fret markers, and long story short, was in need of something to clean out glue. Combination of both tools save me from starting all over again.

The tools worked great and now i am ready to set my frets (from Stewmac). I bought this one new in 1956, Gretsch left hand Chet Atkins model solid Body.. Made the fret board probably about 30 years ago,plays and sounds great with TV jones pickups

VERY Handy tool

Both are handy tools if you do a lot of fretwork, but the Fret Slot Cleaning Tool is the best! It works just like Dan says and demonstrates in the video on the StweMac website.

Love the refret saw. I've had a few over the years but I've always gotten my best results when using this simple tool.

The slot cleaning tool is great! Get's down into the slot to clean up the gunk and brings it out even on a binded neck. The saw was a different story. Hard to get used to, doesn't get to the very end of the slot, could have been better by cutting the blade better to take advantage of the teeth. Careful not to go too hard as you may just bust right through the bindings or at least knick them. I'm sure with more experience I'll get the saw under control.

I ended up using both of these tools on a recent refret job, and they were indispensable for getting the fret slots clean.

Never use the saw LOVE the cleaning tool

saw is easy to jam, fast to nick your finish, awkward handled, just useless to me. The fret cleaner tool gets used constantly when I'm refretting. sometimes you have to take the little blade out and rub it on a water stone t keep it from hanging up to much but it gets almost everything out.
