    1. "Sloppy Gripping" Update 3 Star Review

      Posted by on May 14, 2017

      Biggest issue with this press is the poor fitting rivets on the upper jaw. So, I replaced the upper jaw hinge rivet (where the handle meets the jaw) and the caul rivet with bolt/nut/spacer. This secured the sloppy fitting caul and upper jaw making the press more stable. I then straightened the crooked upper jaw so it lined up with the lower jaw. I found no problem with the lower jaw assembly. So far the modified press seems to be working fine. If you don't mind doing a little modifying, you can make this into a decent fret press at a fair price.

    2. Sloppy Gripping 2 Star Review

      Posted by on May 13, 2017

      When clamping a new fret, these pliers twist. Kind of like a cheap pair of vice grip jaws twist, compared to a more expensive pair. First I added a spacer washer to the upper cawl to keep it straight. That's when I noticed that the pliers were also twisting. I know these are less than half the price of the "other guys" clamp, but I was still expecting better than what I got.
      Can't recommend.
