About This Item

Spend less time filing fret ends!
This is the best tool for trimming the ends off fretwire.

A Stewart-MacDonald exclusive, our custom-made steel cutter has improved features you won't find on hardware store nippers.

The jaws are specially hardened for fret work, and they're profiled and flush-ground to cut the wire close to the fretboard. The result is a cleaner cut without pulling the wire, so you'll need less filing. Longer rubber-coated handles allow better access to the frets over a guitar body.

1" (25.4mm) jaw width, 8" (203.20mm) length.

Essential for Fretting
This item is 1 of the 7 tools included in our Essential Fretting Tool Set, a compilation of tools you'll need for the fundamentals of fret work. The set also includes our book, Fret Work Step-By-Step by Erick Coleman with Dan Erlewine.

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 tool

Does the job better then expexted.
I use stainless steel frets, it cuts as if the frets were made of copper.
Only disadvantage is that orders are sent by FEDEX, they allways charge 20% Dutch tax in advance, so I pay double tax (US and Netherlands). DHL for example sends the package direct to your home, you only need to pay the tax if the package is caught by customs.

I received my Fret cutter and had both ends chip first time I used them. These things happen.
I contacted Stew Mac, they got back to me Immediately and sent a new pair out at no cost. I did not even have to ship the original cutters back. As a business owner I know that the true test of a good company is how they handle a situation when something goes wrong.

Kudos to stewmac!

I have been needing this for quite some time; it works much better that the diagonals I have been using. Neat cuts and easy to clean up and bevel.

My first ones broke cutting stainless fretwire. Stew Mac sent me a new one. I will only be using these cutting nickel frets. Dremel for stainless.
