Works two sides on a row

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Works two sides on a row, but is leaves some scraches on the sides. Be careful when using it. If you don't have the propper hand to work it, you might have to work teo times to get it perfect.

Careful with these

These can carve fissures in the frets too deep to get out if you don't exercise good filing technique. Otherwise they work fine.

I was pleasantly surprised

I learned to crown frets with a triangle file and bought these several years ago when I read a few of the reviews. After several years of use I couldn't be happier. I can't imagine not having them in the shop and I haven't touched a triangle file in ages. I have found them to be real time savers. Great job StewMac
