S-T259-A Fret Press - Handheld, 4 cauls
Handheld fret press is a professional fretting tool that gives you finer control over the pressure needed to seat a fret into the slot - you can actually feel it seating! It eliminates complicated clamping setups, so your press-in fret jobs go faster. There's a self-leveling upper caul that adjusts easily to any neck. Used with radius inserts (S-T261) to press frets into guitar fret boards. This method is preferred by many as an alternative to hammering the frets in. Includes 4 interchangeable support cauls.

S-TGTSC1 String Cutters - CruzTOOLS GrooveTech, for guitar and bass
CruzTOOLS developed the GrooveTech String Cutters specifically for Guitar and Bass strings. Guitar and bass strings are made of hardened stainless steel or nickel with thicknesses as high as 3mm. Ordinary diagonal cutters are designed for soft copper, and thus fail miserably when used on strings. GrooveTech String Cutters were developed specifically for this application, using a proprietary heat-treatment process. Despite its compact five-inch length, even “B” bass strings cut easily and your days of dented blades will be a thing of the past. Vinyl grips feel great in your hands.
