Best option for removing tangs

Awesome product. There are plenty of other options out there that cut the tang instead of file it, and they all have mixed reviews or issues with stainless steel. This tool does the intended job perfectly. And most importantly, if you first attempt isn't successful, it just requires adjusting the height of the file slightly until you are accurately removing all of the tang and not touching the under side of the fret.

Perfect for bound necks, or stainless fret wire

Fret tang nibblers are fast, but leave a rough cut that is very tedious and time consuming to clean up.

This jig takes a minute or less to setup for the size of fret wire, and then each fret end is clamped and filed in seconds. The result is a perfectly prepared fret, with a smooth underside.

Best Fret Tang File Available

I'm a little late reviewing this tool, but I've used it now for the past few years. I used to use tang nippers and then try to file the tangs flush with the bottom of the fret itself. This wasn't too bad in the beginning but it was time consuming and tedious work. Between nippers getting dull and trying get the rest of the tang flush without rounding the edges of the fret crown, it was not easy. I saw this tool not too long after it was designed and knew immediately from the description I had to have it. Hands down, the best tool for this job. For fretboards with binding or fret tangs that do not meet the edge of the board, this tool better than cuts the time in half to prepare frets for installing. You can adjust how much fret tang you want to remove from the end of the fret and leave the bottom of the crown with a smooth, flat bottom, all with one tool. Thank you LMI for the innovative tools.
