How do we polish frets?

We were asked recently how we got frets to look so good.  There a few methods to get to the same result.  Here are a couple.  One way is to use small fret polishing wheels that we shape to the contour of the frets and use different grits to bring the fret up to a slick feeling polish.   The large wheel works great to polish the frets and the fingerboard.  The goal is a smooth and slick bending fret and have the fingerboard not feel sticky under your fingers.

  1. I wish I owned one of those polishing machines! Maybe I’ll invest in something soon.
