Fret Tang remover?

I just saw this online for about $7. Someone had posted a picture before but I can't find it, of a nibbler used to remove fret tangs.
This is the only picture, but can anyone tell enough about it to tell if it would work?

I think this might have been it. Did someone say a modification had to be made?

It appears to be similar in form to the fret tang nibbler I have (from Stewmac). Very possibly exactly what you need for a bound fretboard. You could go over to Stewmac's website and take a look at theirs, it looks something like this but it (Stewmac's picture) shows the fret channel and the cutting face, etc. If you aren't doing a bound fretboard, or a sime-bound fretboard, you won't need this tool.

Thanks, Bill. When I was at Steve's the other day, I remember Ryan saying something about cutting the tangs just a scoche shy of the side of the FB. I just emailed them to clarify. For some reason I think it might have made dressing a bit easier or something. My concern would be that it would allow the fret to come up ever so much easier than running it to the ends. I'll post when they respond.
This one's price also was about $7, and since I'm going to that store tomorrow I'll pick it up. There will be bound fretboards in my future, I hope.

Not sure I posted this here or published it somewhere else. Anyway the second style works pretty good and cheap too! I paid four bucks each for a bunch of them a while back. You need to grind a ramp at a right angle to the cutter -- the top of the fret sets in the channel, the cutting edge clears the fret but knocks off the tang I found that two small nips works best.

And if you want to spend $22 instead of SM's $50 you can get these:

They may need the ramp too.

Ah, I see the ramp. Hm, the fret should sit nicely in there. I got it today, will cut that thing tonite before I forget how. Lol, if that thing in your last pic says "Taiwan", I got the same exact thing at Harbor Freight.
Thanks,
Bob

Bob, I have the Klein referenced by Ken Cierp. It is included in the thread linked by JHS. I have used the Klein now on three guitars, and it really works great.

Cool, I'm looking forward to using it on one of the next ones. Mine looks just like the Klein.

I used the Klein nibbler ($22 at Amazon) last night after buzzing the little channel into it as directed by members of this forum. It worked perfectly!! My last bound FB took forever since I was using wire cutters to nip off the tang. I did the whole FB last night in under an hour.
I also used Bill Cory's tip of putting a piece of plastic coffee can lid over the face of the hammer before hammering in the frets. That also worked like a charm!!
My first guitar has a couple of dings in the frets from not hitting them squarely. No marks on this set.
Thanks for the great tips on the fret tang nibbler and the hammer cover! Real money and time savers!!
