FRET PULLER / FRET REMOVAL TOOL COMBINATION
The Fret Puller / Fret Removal Tool Combination is a specially designed set featuring 2 complimentary tools for simpler fret removal.
TOOL #1 - FRET PULLER / PRIZING TOOL
The tool design is unique and features special tips which are designed to penetrate the underside of the fret either side of the tang. By using gentle leverage and pressure obtained by the contour of the tool resting on the fretboard protector, the fret end can be carefully prized up.
The tips are manufactured from ground gauge plate/knife steel. The steel is through hardened having good strength combined with high surface hardness. The tips can be dressed with a diamond file. Tip breakage is uncommon however Spare Tool Tips can be purchased from the webstore.
TOOl #2 - FRET PULLING PLIERS
With the frets end prized away, the job of lifting the remainder of the fret with the pliers is much easier.
The contact edges of the pliers are dressed both internally and externally to a sharp corner to ensure flat seating on the fretboard and easy access underneath the fret.

Please note that some splitting of the wood as frets are removed is unavoidable and small cosmetic repairs to the fretboard may be necessary.
