Re: Replacing frets Do-it-yourself-how-to
I'd be more inclined to use razor blades and a fret saw (or a very fine Japanese dozuki) for those tasks... a Dremel in those operations seems risky to me. One little slip and you can seriously mangle a fret slot and/or the fretboard.
Refretting definitely takes some skill and patience to get really good results. But if you've got an old beater to practice on, i say go for it.
I am surprised at how often people seem to think they need to replace their frets, though. Frets should last a REALLY long time, even with very heavy play, unless they were really low to begin with (like Les Paul Custom low). You should be able to level and re-dress the frets at least a few times before you rip them out and start again.
