Item details

Rocker Leveling Tool for Frets - Luthiers Tool, Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Bass, Dulcimer

Description – This tool is used for determining if a particular fret is higher than the other two around it on your musical instrument. It is made out of aluminum and the sides measure 1 5/16 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 1/16in thick.

Note: This item ships by special “Non-Machinable” standard postage and will not show a tracking number and may have sporadic delivery times because they are hand carried through the system to prevent damage.

Some features of our Fret Rockers include:

1. Diamond Honed, for the smooth most accurate edge possible, see the difference in our pictures that this makes.
2. We have free shipping and lower cost.
3. Lowest International shipping rate.
4. “Easy Fix: option if you nick an edge or bend a side.
5. Softer edges meaning less possible marring of frets.
6. Made in NC, USA preventing the use of any foreign child labor in this product.
7. Consumes at least ½ the energy to manufacture than our competitors. We use green energies and recycled packaging whenever possible to reduce our carbon foot print.
8. Our Fret Rockers are made by dedicated hard tooling. (Not CNC technologies which use a zig-zag cutting pattern.)

Note: Fret placement on musical instruments are often done by hand and misalignment of the frets as measured by the edge is only an indicator and may not mean a defect in the quality or workmanship of the instrument(s) being checked.

Recycled Packaging and Carbon Footprint – It ships in reinforced recycled packaging and we use green energies whenever possible in the manufacturing of this product. We also use bicycles to make our post office shipments whenever possible to reduce our carbon footprint.

Compatibility – This rocker will work with any instrument that uses a scale between 20.25 and 41 inches. Don’t ask us what scale your instrument uses, because we won’t know.

Easy Fix – If you use this item a lot or if you nick an edge you may wish to ‘refresh’ the edge. It contains an aluminum alloy that can be reshaped much easier that other alloys. The edge can be refreshed by lightly running the edge on almost any file or a piece of fine sandpaper on a known flat surface. The straightness can be seen by shinning a light behind the edge while it is on a flat surface. It is possible to make the edge .0001in or straighter using this method. If you bend it, it can be straightened by tapping on the backside of the bend with a light hammer and a piece of wood on the aluminum and recheck with a backlight.
