Reset loose fret ends without restringing! Simply fit end of this handy tool over the crown of a fret, and tap with a hammer.

 

This is a simple little tool that can make your fret reseating jobs a lot quicker and easier. The end of the tool is machined to fit over the crown of the fret, and you simply tap the tool with a hammer. Its narrow contact surface makes short work of reseating loose fret ends, and you can use it even when the strings are still on the instrument. Hold it by hand for supergluing a loose fret end: it makes a great spot caul for pressing the fret down while the glue sets. The machined brass Fret Setter wide sku: 1662 is 5″ long with a 3/8″ fret contact surface, and works well for wide fretwire. Setters are available for wide, medium, and narrow fretwires.

The Fret Setter narrow (SKU: 1632) works for Stew Mac’s # 0764 Narrow/Low fretwire which is used for modern standard mandolin, ukulele, and old-style small banjo fretwire.
