Perfect Tool

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Personally had worked without these tools, I took a long time dividing the space between a String another, and never were perfect until I got the Essential Nut Making Tool Kit.

The kit is perfect and very easy to use.

With this kit I am able to make perfect nuts and saddles. And that was of course why I bought it.

Don't drive yourself nuts - get this kit

This kit is well designed and saves hours and reduces waste due to errors. I used it in conjunction with the Basic Setup Kit to sort out problems on a new mandolin and am delighted with the results. The mandolin now plays so much better with a great action and improved intonation. Highly recommended and compliments to Stewmac on getting this item all the way to Scotland in record time

Essential Nut-Making Tool Kit

Another example of a Stew Mac product which makes life so much easier. I've been using a hobby vice and cheaper files before I invested in this kit. Why did I bother? I wish I'd bought this kit months ago!

"Essential" is the correct  Word

This vise and the files work together like a well oiled machine. I have been using a regular vise and crap files for a long time and this system is awesome. I pretty much use real "pre-ban" Ivory for my nuts and these files create a smooth surface and the high profile angle of the vise make it easy to create the bevel on the nut. A must have for any guitar maker
