Refret Saw

About This Item

Clean or deepen fret slots for better fret seating!
New frets won't seat correctly until the old fret slots are clean.

Designed by fretting expert Dan Erlewine, each of these unique saws has two 3/8" blades. One cuts on the pull stroke, the other on the push. The three saws have different blade thicknesses; use them in sequence as needed to loosen packed wood dust and old glue, or to deepen shallow fret slots, even on bound fingerboards. They're better for these tasks than a standard fret saw, which won't work on a bound board and can unnecessarily widen the slots on a radiused board.

Each saw is 9-3/4" overall, with a wooden handle and two 3/8" blades.

The Refret Saw is included in this money-saving set:

Decent little tool

By

Verified Buyer


I use this tool all the time. Only wish I have Is that it had replaceable blades. My first one lasted a 3-4 years. Just bought my second one. I don’t like having two blades, I use the end one only. Using the rear one leaves me open to slipping and hitting the side of the neck with the end blade. Just my opinion, still a very useful too.

Needed for bound fingerboards

By

Verified Buyer


If you have to deepen some fret slots on a bound fingerboard, this is the way to go. It's just a simple saw that they seem to have cut a notch out of - but hey, it works!

I've been needing this for a while. I have a mandolin I'm refretting and refinishing and this was perfect to deepen the slots a little to put in new frets. Now I need the other two sizes.

Before the first use

By

Verified Buyer


One thing you really want to do before the first use is to round off the sharp edges on the leading and trailing edges of the saw blades. This will greatly reduce the chances of chipping the fret slot edges.

Poor quality.

Verified Buyer


It is a very useful tool but the blades dull very very quickly.

Great Tool

By

Verified Buyer


I've seen these for years and thought they were frivolous...until I had to re-fret a bound fretboard! They worked great. I bought the set. I started with the smallest and worked up until the fret fit just right.

Refret Saw

Be absolutely positive of which size of saw you want. Too large and you'll be using glue to hold the frets.

Ingenius tool. I don't clean fret slots without these. A must have tool.
