I ordered both files! I used one on my medium jumbo frets on my MIM Teleaster! Take you time and it works well! Crowned the frets to perfection! After I used it the frets were very easy to polish up to a smooth bright shine with little effort!

Great files

I use to do this with a 3 corner file - never again. These files are easy to use, work great and won't damage the fingerboard. It pays for itself after just one use.

Great File

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have the N/M file and to date I have used it to recrown 6 guitars.This file is a very well made tool that cuts great.I also use the file with sandpaper to polish the frets.The finished product is no less than amazing and it cut my recrowning time in half.I will soon be ordering the M/W because the N/M is not big enough for my Les Paul copy or my Jackson.I am very pleased with this tool.

File that files

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Never done this before. I flat filed the frets and then contoured them with this file. I then polished them with 400/600/800/1000/1200/1500/2000 grit and some rubbing compound. Without this file the job would have been extremely difficult. I wouldn't want to tackle those frets with a 3 corner file. I think a finer file would have been better but that is just being picky.
