The Fret Puller Combination Set includes a purpose designed fret removal tool and fret pulling pliers. The set offers increased options for the clean removal of fret wire and both tools are designed for easier grip of the fret with protection for the fretboard face.
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 leverage via the tool resting on the fretboard protector, the tool can be used to carefully prize up the fret end.
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 to maintain sharpness. Tip breakage is uncommon however if this should occur then Spare Tool Tips are available from the webstore.
TOOl #2 - FRET PULLING PLIERS
With the frets end prized away, the remainder of the fret can be lifted using the pliers.
In addition to grinding the face of the pliers flush, they are also modified with an internal relief to ensure easier access underneath the fret. (The pliers should not be used for cutting purposes as this would reduce their effectiveness).

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