I've used the fret dressing stick since I started fretwork 20 years ago! It's my go to tool for taking out the chatter on any fret situation. I just had to order a new one after years of use from my first one. IT LASTED 20 YEARS!
I purchased these fret dressing sticks to clean up some of my frets on my favourite strats as the previous re-fret had left some marks and also had not re-crowned them quite enough. I found these sticks to be very adaptable to the job in hand as I used the 320 grit then the 600 grit to finish them off, followed by a polish with Micro-Mesh Soft Touch Finishing Pads. I am very pleased with the results and would recommend these dressing sticks, as you can take as little off as you require depending on the grade of grit you use, as opposed to using fret files which can be quite harsh depending on how much they have been used and how worn they are, these sticks are very good value for money and very economical to use, highly recommended.
Just received my 2nd one, my first came with the Essential Fret Kit, I wanted another to notch the end for fret polishing, but I find it very useful in other jobs that I want a regular edged one as well. Cheap enough and works great!
made in the USA! :)
I had dressed all my fret jobs by hand using sandpaper and a small wood block. This Sanding stick worked out so well I don't know why I didn't get it sooner. Thanks Stewmac

Love this cheap little tool. Be even better if the papers grit # was clearly written on them as my eyes can't easily tell the difference.
I have had one of these for a lot of years and use it for many projects even to smoothe the edge of the frets after a debur job it also makes it easier to polish the fret edges by using the finest sand paper strip no one should be without this product.
Even my Fine and X-tra Fine diamond files cannot do what this little baby does! It's clever.
I bought one and will buy at least two more. Excellent product and if you make a small notch on the stick's tip it's perfect for dressing frets.
Works like a champ not only for dressing frets, but is extremely helpful in tight curves like mandolin scrolls.
