Just saw that StewMac now has a fret tang nippers that can be used on stainless steel frets.
stewmac heavy duty fret tang nipper for fretting bound neck stringed instruments
Different design than the original SM or Allparts nippers. Would be interested to hear if any one has tried these yet.Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire*. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.
*Excludes our original Fret Tang Nippers. We recommend our Deluxe Fret Tang Nippers for stainless-steel fretwire.
