Fretting Hammer Spare Faces

The fretting hammers made by Chris Alsop have changeable faces. The hard rubber faces (availble in 16mm and 20mm diameter), allow a gentler impluse over a wider area, whereas, a brass face allows an accurate relatively high impluse to be delivered to a small area of the dres. The 20mm is ideal for the low fret and the 16mm is ideal for gettign between the high frets.

45 Degree Fret End Bevel File

This is a 45 degrees Angled Bevel File
The diamond file which is mounted in a holder allows it to be guided along the fretboard with the file cutting an accurate bevel on the fret ends. The handle is constructed from very low friction, high grade engineering
The main advantage of using a Bevel File is that a really consistent professional job is achieved where all the fret ends are at the same angle. This main point about bevelling is to make sure there are no sharp edges or uncomfortable fret ends which hamper playing. If a fret end is too long then it disturbs the feel of the neck as the players moves around the fretboard; if the fret end angle is too shallow then the string can easily start to slip off The cutting file is a fine grit diamond file which leaves a good finish and all that is needed is the final light sanding to remove any scratches or uncomfortable edges and finally a polish.

Fret Cutters

These cutters are a high quality large end cutter that has been precision ground by us for use as a fret cutter. The design of the cutting edge has been optimised for withstanding harder fret materials such as stainless steel as well as the more common nickel alloy. The jaws of these cutters are Chrome Vanadium which is more than adequate material to cut stainless steel frets. The force required is best achieved by taking full advantage of the 8 inch long handles and squeezing the jaws shut at the very ends of the handles.
Many cutter brands have been tried and tested and these offer the properties of
1) Made from very hard tool steel;
2) 8" long handles with comfortable rubber grips;
3) Able to cut the hardest fret wire including stainless steel frets;
4) Hardened and Tempered Tool Steel.

Our precision grinding of the cutting ends allows
1) The cutters to be used very close to the fretboard. This minimises the amount of fret left that has to be filed
2) The point at which the cut is going to occur to be visible before committing to the cut
