Versatile 4-in-1 tool for frets and fingerboards!
Magnets in the handle make file swapping fast and easy.

Our R&D guys (luthiers and repairmen themselves) envisioned an all-purpose fret and fingerboard leveler with interchangeable files—one versatile tool that can do the work of four, saves space in a tool drawer, includes improvements for more efficiency, and adapts quickly and easily to every stage of leveling. The result is our Snapfile Leveling System, bringing great new innovations for your fretwork.

Versatile, efficient handle
The handle is made of anodized machined aluminum, for a heftier weight that works more efficiently with less chatter. It's shaped to fit either hand, with lifetime durability.

Fast, easy file swapping at each stage of leveling
Strong magnets embedded in the recessed handle hold the file securely. Each 1" x 6" (25.4mm x 152.4mm) steel leveling file simply snaps in, snaps out.

Four versatile leveling files
Standard fret leveling file with chatter-free single-cut teeth.
300-grit diamond-coated file levels frets smoothly in both directions.
Fret end beveling file with 90-degree teeth resists sliding off the fretboard.
Super-sharp chemically-machined Razor File levels fingerboards and pearl inlays more efficiently.

Before i bought the snap file system I used an old nicholson which was fine for a while even when it was new it never cut as good and wasn't nearly as comfortable. worth every penny.. i can do more leveling in a day with less fatigue.

Daily use tool

I use this tool about every day and just love it. The handle had a nice weight and solidness to it and is surprisingly comfortable for being a chunk of metal. I use the straight cut and diamond file most, the others occasionally, but they are all nice to have.

If you do a lot of guitar repair then you most likely have many tools in your shop. This needs to be one of them! Immediately when this snap file arrived I knew it was going to be good. The feel, the design, the precision. I almost like doing fret work now. Almost.

Great tool with many uses

I bought this tool along with the radiused sanding blocks, thinking that i would use the blocks to keep me honest and accurate. I found that i could do the first pass with these and then just use the radius block for the final fine grit. Great tool and superb selection of files.
