StewMac Fret Heater

About This Item

Pull frets the easy way!
Our custom-made soldering iron tip makes it easy to heat up frets for effortless removal.

Pros know that heating a fret before removing it made the whole job much easier. The heat helps loosen glue, and keeps chipping down. For years we've been modifying soldering tips for this everyday job, but we wanted a safer and more professional tool.

Our Fret Heater is a custom tip for Solomon SR-965 soldering irons. Just like a replacement tip, it slips on and is ready to go. The tip is made of copper for fast heat transfer and features grooves for narrow-medium and wide-jumbo fret sizes. The special shape also helps to keep the tip on the fret without slipping off and burning the fretboard, which can happen with a regular tip.

    StewMac Fret Heater features:
  • Fast heating copper construction
  • Two sides to fit narrow-medium and wide-jumbo fret sizes
  • Fits Solomon SR-965 soldering iron

Want to pull frets with precision? Get the set!
Our team has assembled everything you need to do the job safely with our Fret Pulling Set. The set includes the Fret Heater, Soldering Iron, Precision Fret Puller, and Chip Stoppers, all designed by our master fretters. You'll be ready to tackle any fret work with confidence.

Improperly sized


Verified Buyer

I bought this with my new Solomon soldering station, but it is too long to be secured by the collar. I can and will cut it to fit, but shouldn't have to. I anticipate that it should otherwise work well.

Response from StewMac

Hi Craig,

Thanks for sharing this feedback with us, we truly appreciate it. We are sorry to hear that the StewMac Fret Heater did not meet your expectations. As stated in the product description, the Fret Heater was designed as a custom tip for the Solomon SR-965 soldering irons. If you have the Solomon SL-30 Soldering Station, that is different and the two are not compatible. You are more than welcome to send that back for an exchange, refund, or store credit. Just contact us through our website if you have any questions and one of our customer support representatives will gladly assist you.
