High quality .020" alloy steel blades get into fret slots to loosen stubborn old glue and packed wood chips fast. You can work on bound fingerboards where a fret saw can't go, and also deepen the slots if needed. The convenient blade angle lets you clean right up to the edge of the bindings. Easy and efficient refret preparation! Leave fret slots gunk-free, a must for seating replacement fretwire correctly.

Lightweight 5-1/8" (130.17mm) bamboo handles.

Double-edge saw features time-saving 9/16" (14.29mm) pull-cut and 1/2" (12.70mm) push-cut teeth, for clearing both ends of the fret slot right up to the bindings. The cutting edges are angled for easy access to your work.

TIP: Our Fret Slot Depth Gauge is a great way to check your progress while cleaning fret slots.

Great tool

Very nice tool. Does a fantastic job cleaning out frets. Using this on a fretless conversion project I'm doing. Only thing I wish was that the handle was made of some more dense wood for some more weight to it.

Invaluable tool!

I've only had one of these for two days now, and it's already proved itself invaluable. Great for bound boards with leftover glue or shallow slots, this is the best tool for the job.

this tool is just great!! i used to clean slots with an exacto knife. First a normal one that i modified after a while. No more. I am really amazed about how fast you can do the job with this tool. You'll be faster than a speeding bullet when you clean your slots. Thank you StewMac!!

Japanese super saw

It works incredibly fast and efficient - a very exciting process. I'm noted with adhesive tape the level of depth according to Fret Slot Depth Gauge.
