Fret/Fingerboard Levelers

About This Item

Precision-ground for flatness.
Fast, accurate leveling tools for the pro shop.

Each heavyweight rectangular 1" x 2" steel tube is precision-ground for flatness on the narrow sides. Attach abrassive to quickly level frets or level an unfretted fingerboard. The tool's edges are smooth to prevent gouging.

Available in three lengths, to level any fingerboard.

Roger Sadowsky, ace builder and repairman, wrote us to say:
"I have been leveling fingerboards and frets for 30 years and thought I was pretty set in my ways. However, I have recently tried the 16" steel levelers (#4578) and man, talk about teaching an old dog new tricks! My fingerboards have never been better, and they work much better than files for leveling frets. Thank you again, StewMac!!!"

Cut and stick!
3M Stikit Gold Paper Self-adhesive Abrasives are the right width for our leveling and radius sanding tools. Attach 80 through 220-grits for radiusing and leveling the fingerboard, and 220 through 400-grits for leveling the frets.

Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.

I used to use a long sharpening stone for fret levelling. Now, with this fret leveller I can remove material much faster and with great accuracy and flatness.

As usual a superb product with many uses beyond leveling frets. This takes a lot of the guesswork and worry out of re-fret jobs

Fantastico! Giusto peso etc... fate passare le corde dentro due alla volta e rettificate con le corde in tensione ed in posizione "di suonaggio". Altro che neck jig!!

If you combine this with the 3M Stikit, that's when it all make sense. I'm a hobbyist luthier and I can say that this made a significant difference in term of neck action (lower). Great addition to the fretting tool box

Tough and Level

As level as you would expect it. In addition, it's quite heavy and very tough. The photo makes it seem like some extruded metal but it's quite heavy. I really like it.

This is a NECESSITY tool for fret jobs.

All I can say is wow!!! I finally got the 16 inch fret leveler and 220 sand paper. This tool made fret leveling fun instead of such a long process and with a little elbow grease the frets were leveled in no time. Thanks Stewmac you're awesome!!!
