    1. Lasted 1/2 of one stainless fret before exploding 1 Star Review

      Posted by on Oct 11, 2017

      I installed the stainless steel jumbo frets and got out the brand new Fastcap fret nippers. FIrst, they would not cut through the stainless frets. When I applied more force, the jaw shattered--the one side of the jaw made a glancing bounce off my shoulder, and I still haven't found it. The fret was still not cut. These may work for soft metal frets, but are not useful for stainless frets. At a minimum, the description of this item should indicate that it should not be used for the harder fret materials. Will attempt to get my money back from Fastcap.
      **Admin - used these on lots of stainless fretwire without any problem. Contact FastCap for a replacement. All FastCap tools have a lifetime warranty through Fastcap - tel:1-888-443-3748 email - info@fastcap.com


    2. Great price for this aspiring guitar tech 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Jun 27, 2017

      They've chomped over 96+ Jescar nickel silver fret ends and I can't see any stress fractures,chipping, or rolling of the cutting edges. These can get in so close to the fingerboard that I could probably get away with leaving the beveling file in the drawer (yeah, that's not gonna happen).

      Little tip, I've got large hands (according to glove size) so I have to overhang the end of the handles for good leverage. That's with Jescar's 18% nickel silver. Weaker 12% wire just folds itself over and snaps off in submission when I brandish the Fastcap!


    3. Worked good for me on EVO wire 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Dec 27, 2016

      I've only used them for one fret job so far, so I cannot vouch for longevity yet. That said, the job I used them on was with Jescar's EVO gold wire, which is much harder than nickel-silver. They cut the ends very cleanly and there was no damage to the cutting edges when I was finished. Satisfied with them for now, for sure. Pretty good for what they cost.


    4. Great tool, reasonable price. 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 13, 2016

      Very solid construction, rated as 4 stars cause I'll have to wait for longjevity?


    5. Superb Results 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Nov 15, 2015

      I used this for the first time this week and at first I was thrilled at
      how much less end dressing I had to do to the fret ends. Makes life easier
      when you are doing a Les Paul with binding and need precise cuts to preserve the nibs. Saved me a ton of time.

      It does not leave the tradition large "V", but rather a smaller "V" so you can
      cut the fret much closer to speed up work. Saved about 3 minutes a fret to bevel them.

      I did a test cut on a Jescar Stainless Steel fret and it cut through with no problem. No marring of the tool and the same results as cutting NS frets.


    6. Don't be fooled 1 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 15, 2015

      Don't expect much for the low price. These are NOT good cutters. I cut two stainless steel fret wire ends and the cutting edges were instantly distorted (chipped). The construction is as inferior as other junk from China. Save your money and find a respectable set of fret cutters that won't get thrown away in the middle of a re-fret job.
