Essential Fretting Tool Set

About This Item

Good basic tools you'll need to get started.
Includes the definitive Fret Work Step-By-Step book!

Want to learn how to fret a guitar, but not sure how to start or which tools to choose? Stop fretting...and start fretting! Assembled by our experts, the Essential Fretting Tool Set is a great way to master the fundamentals with only a modest investment in good quality tools.

These are the basic tools you'll need for installing, leveling, crowning and inspecting frets.

And to give you the best possible head start, we include Fret Work Step-By-Step book. It's the most complete book ever published on the subject, with techniques, tips, tools and tricks.

The Essential Fretting Set features the same tools we supply to professional repair shops—good tools that give you the confidence to do good work. They'll help prepare you for more specialized jobs and tools later as your skills develop.

Includes (click the links for details on each tool)
Fret Cutter
Deadblow Fretting Hammer
Fret Leveling File, 6"
Double-edge Fret File, wide/jumbo
Fret End Dressing File
Fret Dressing Stick with 14 Micro-Mesh Belts
Fret Rocker
Fret Work Step-By-Step, 2nd edition

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

Great products and video education to get you going smoothly and correctly. This was my first refret job on a 78 fender strat i bought in a junk sale and looked like all frets were beat to death with hammer. After getting kit and some SM video teachings i was off and running with no problems at all and now have a strat in factory new condition. thank you stewmac i will be doing more projects in the future.

Essential Fretting Kit.. For Real

This kit has everything you need to install frets. I got both this and the fret press caul to use with my drill press, and tried both out while learning how to use the tools. It's a really enjoyable process, and this kit makes every step ALOT easier without having to search in more than one place for the necessary tools. Buy the kit and you have everything you need.

Essential Fretting Kit- "That which does not kill you...."

By

Verified Buyer


Despite fear & trepidation, I embarked on the mission of a partial refret job. I did my homework & read Don's revised fretwork manual.

It went very well, and I am pleased with the results. Not sure if I'm ready to do it for anybody else yet, but I now know it's do-able!

Fantastic tools, the book is good, as it puts you in the driving seat and lets you decide the tools you are more comfortable with and how you want to work. Will be making further purchases from stewmac.com well done!!!!

Good starting point for your fretting efforts. Stew-Mac should consider adding the fret side dressing file to the kit.

Almost essential

Verified Buyer


When you look inside the included book it will list all the tools you need to do the job. Sadly a lot of essential tools are not included. Straight edge, radius blocks and a few more tools would be nice.

Great tools

Made short work of setting up a guitar. All the tools are high quality and made the job much easier. I especially like the Fret Rocker. it helped identify what had to be done quickly and easily.
