This is a pair of fret pullers - we modify a standard pair of pliers by hand grinding and reshaping the ends - this makes them really grip the frets and allows the user to control how they pull the fret out. Usually, it's best to ease it out little by little to avoid damaging the wood of the fretboard.
THESE FRET PULLERS ARE 110mm long - the same as most small pliers and end cutters.
The fretboard protector strip is made of Spring Steel Fretboard Protector strip and is only 0.1mm thick, which is ultra-thin for strips, so allows maximum access to the frets.
They are suitable for gripping in one hand. Our tests show that jaws (about 10mm across) allow a high pressure to be applied to the fret curved surface - and this means a very good grip is achieved allowing a controlled withdrawal of the fret. Fret pulling is a delicate operation and requires small, light and accurate tools that grip well.
The whole process is reliable and controllable using this tool compared to using ordinary unmodified pliers - see the picture comparing the way in which the grip is achieved.
Please note - these are not cutters, they are for pulling frets out. Usually, more leverage is required to cut a fret and, whilst these will cut some types of frets, they get undue wear on the jaws and be strained.
The strip is made of Spring Steel. Its main property is that it will ALWAYS RETURN TO A FLAT SHAPE. Other metals will become bent and puckered with use resulting in a strip that prevents you from having a smooth surface to work with. Being made of Spring Steel our strips ALWAYS SPRING BACK TO ORIGINAL SHAPE.
