Just saw that StewMac now has a fret tang nippers that can be used on stainless steel frets. :thumb:


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.
Different design than the original SM or Allparts nippers. Would be interested to hear if any one has tried these yet.

I have the Simtoms one and for the most part I really like it. I did somehow squeeze my finger in it during my last refret using SS though lol. I had 2 nice blood blisters from that one.
