Very good tools

This set of tools are really useful and practical to use. The seller is excellent and fast in shipping, pity about the delays of DHL in Italy...

Great kit

By

Verified Buyer


This kit does what it is claimed to do and more, with the Mitchell cords can do any nut or saddle with ease, I did not expect to find so many uses for the nut vice though! (a few of my friends want to order one and they don't even work on stringed instruments.) I literally use the nut vice everyday for all the work I do outside of stringed instruments. Thanks StewMac

They named this kit well!

You couldn't ask for a better set up in your tool box! You'll use it for a lot more than making nuts. The string gauge is brilliant, you'll want to kiss the guy that came up with the idea! Files and saw are top notch. The vise is worth it's weight in gold all day long, I use it all the time.

Well thought out kit

By

Verified Buyer


This kit is a perfectly well thought out kit for anyone working on guitars. Though I'd love to see the .105 guage added for basses, this set is everything you need and more to make nuts properly. The vise, feeler guages, and Shaping files will get much more use outside of just the normal nut making!

One of my most important purchases!

I'm a novice builder, and all my early efforts suffered from my problems to create a proper nut and saddle. This kit instantly improved my ability to build a playable instrument. Nicely made and do exactly the job they were intended for.

simply must have..

Thus set is a must have set of tools to create your saddle and nut. The quality is very very good that stewmac really know what u want... The only complaint is the slotting files. I do need a little time to recognize which side is the right size hence...4 star. But it isn't hard. Just that it can be better.

Everything you need!

I used this kit to build the nut on my last project and im sure it will be used for many nuts to come. the only issue is that the slotting files aren't marked on the actual file, i had to use my calipers to find the actual gauge then write it on the file in sharpie. However, they certainly help make a solid nut! the picture is my first nut ever

Excellent tool kit

Making a nut seems to be a art form that every guitar tech or luthier develops their own technique and skill set to achieve. This kit is definitely the nut builders palette and enables learning as much as improving and continuing to make great nuts.

i was givin a red and black nylon string guitar, that someone put a steel string nut on it and strung it up with steel strings, so it was a good practice guitar.
