FRET LEVELLING & FRET CROWNING ABRASIVE CHOICE

The type of abrasive recommended & supplied with the kit is Emery Corundum - less aggressive than diamond - but with excellent polishing characteristics. It is recognised as the best abrasive for finishing and polishing of metal which makes it a perfect choice for fret crowning and fret dressing. 

Genuine Emery Corundum is made from crushed Emery Stone - Rich in Blue Corundum/Blue Sapphire. Its composition enables a highly polished finish to be achieved.

 

Dependant on fret wear, the abrasive included is sufficient for 4-6 fretting jobs, however as the emery becomes smoother with use, the abrasive should not be discarded too soon as it can be retained for lighter work.

 

Replacement abrasives can be purchased from the webstore.
