Fret tang nipper
When you want to have blind fret ends on the fretboard of your guitar, like for example with a binding, you will need to remove a bit of the tang from the fret wire without damaging the fret crown. This tang makes that job easy and quick!
This fret tang nipper cuts the tang of your fret wire effortlessly and is easy to use thanks to the slot for positioning multiple sizes of fret wire.
1 - Remove the securtity
2 - Place the end of your fret wire with the side of the crown and the tang pointed to the cutting blade in the slot of the nipper
3 - Hold your fret wire in place, but make sure your fingers are clear from the cutting blade
4 - Squeeze the nipper and done!
Work from the outside of your fretwire. Precut your wire in the correct length before you start nipping. Remove only as much of the tang as absolutely necessary. The tang holds the fret in place. To be asfe, you can secure the fret in the slot (ad also the nipped ends) with a tiny bit of glue, klike ZAP thin superglue..
