Fret Dressing Stick with Micro-Mesh Belts

About This Item

Upgraded to Micro-Mesh!
The Fret Dressing Stick features interchangeable Micro-Mesh® sanding belts for removing the scratches left by leveling and crowning files.

This comfortable tool is spring-loaded to keep pressure on the sanding belt. A flip of your thumb rotates the belt for a fresh sanding surface. The compact size makes it ideal for fretwork. Use the grits in sequence to achieve a mirror shine on frets and hardware.

TIP: Some of us like to file a groove in the end of the stick. This way it fits over the fretwire like a crowning file.

Much more durable than traditional sandpaper, Micro-Mesh sanding belts are constructed with a thin cushion between the cloth back and the abrasive crystals. This cushion allows the crystals to align evenly and prevents random scratches in your work. Micro-Mesh crystals do not load up or generate heat the way traditional sandpaper does.

The tool measures 6-3/8" (162mm) long. The Micro-Mesh sanding belts are 1/4" (6.35mm) wide.

Stick is great but the old belts were much better.

By

Verified Buyer


I've been using these dressing sticks for many years with great success, but these new micromesh belts are way inferior to the previous ones. They just don't last anywhere near as long & are not as robust.
Very disappointing. Can we have the old belts back as a purchase option please?

i love this tool, easy to get at and pin point high spots on frets, the different grits is awesome, you can take down high spots with the different grits to your liking and then use to polish frets, a must have tool

used this with the 220 strips provided to eliminate marks from 300 grit stewmac diamond fret dressing tool. The 300 still left very visible marks, and this got rid of the worst of them. still a long way to go to get the frets smooth and polished. I used these with the fretboard protector strips. worked pretty well. I may try the fret eraser set to finish up.

Handy!

I purchased several sticks for different grits. They are very handy. But I think old belts was much better as some users pointed out.

Stick is good, belts aren't

...but you can find better belts that fit perfectly the stick.

Fret dressing stick

By

Verified Buyer


I brought the new micro mesh belts and was not happy. I've been using old belts for over ten years and they were great, but these new micro mesh belts are absolute rubbish. For a start they are too big to fit the stick properly and the grit is far smoother than it should be. It's very difficult to keep on the frets as they slip off and damage the board easily. A complete waste of money.
I'm going to have to get some proper belts made from my local abrasive supplier.
Very disappointed.

As with all of my other Stew/Mac purchases, this one is top notch and a must have for any serious repairman, technician, or Luthier.

We use this and many other Stew/Mac tools during manufacturing and setups on all of our Sterling by Music Man and B.C. Rich guitars and basses.
