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.

This is the second of these nipers that I have purchased. The first one ones? edge became severely damaged by cutting frets. Metal is not hard enough. The cut is good though. Tomas

Fret cutters are solid, well made. Could use a bit more grinding, which is tricky. if you do it yourself, be careful

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.
