Fret Slot Cleaning Tool

About This Item

Take it from Dan Erlewine, "A fret won't seat well if its slot isn't clean!" We developed this tool to effectively scrape away wood chips and old glue, for better fret seating.

The Fret Slot Cleaning Tool comes with 2 chisel blades. Additional replacement blades are sold separately.

This 5-1/2" Fret Slot Cleaning Tool has a comfortable handle with a metal collet, and a replaceable hooked .019" thin square-edged chisel that gets into the corners of the slots on bound fretboards. It can be used to scrape the bottom and the wall of the fret slot, and when the tool is held with both hands for control, it pries up dried glue.

The Fret Slot Cleaning Tool is included in this money-saving set:
Refret Saw and Fret Slot Cleaning Tool Set

Yuck! Cleaning fret slot gunk from the Mike Bloomfield Tele

There was a load of glue and grunge under these frets. With scrapers, wipers and heat from an alcohol lamp, it’s amazing how much gunk Dan Erlewine extracted from Mike Bloomfield’s old fretboard!

Just the replacement chisel

By

I've only bought the replacement chisel and it fits perfect in standard blade handles. The chisel along with the japanese fret cleaning tool is a must for refretting.

You don't need the handle

These little hooks work great. A tool that I didn't realize I was missing til I tried it.

I guess if you're cleaning fretslots all day long, the handle would be nice. But I just bought some loose "replacement" chisels. They're large enough to use without any handle at all, or they fit in an x-acto handle

the only tool for cleaning fret slots

With its curved knife its so easy to clean any fret slot, even on fretslots with bindings. Though the blade doesn't seem to get blunt at all, it comes with a spare blade, so it's certain this will get fretslots cleaned for a very long time.

i bought this item because i ran into a neck with fret issues and it is a must have tool for any builder. you can use other types of tool to clean slots but i would recommend this one because it is made for that sole purpose and it is the perfect fit for any fret slot. works great!
