FRETS.NET

I don't do this, but I've started wondering of late if I ought to charge more for dressing stainless steel frets. The last job, an old Tokai strat with a Warmoth neck with jumbo SS frets, really played havoc with my tools + additional time.

What is the consensus out there?

I do a lot of SS refrets and I use these Fastcap HD cutters.

They work great and are relatively inexpensive. The only issue is that its hard to get enough torque to cut through frets where you cant get the whole meat of the tool on it like on the tongue over the body etc. Otherwise they work like a charm!
