Diamond-coated version of our popular leveler
Famously fast and accurate, our heavy steel leveler is now available with 300-grit industrial diamond abrasives. Diamonds cut fast, on both the pull and push stroke, and don't chatter like traditional toothed files.
These 1" x 2" rectangular tubes of heavy steel are precision-ground for flatness on the narrow edges. One edge has the diamond abrasives, and the opposite edge is smooth—for the option of using adhesive sandpaper. The four corners are smoothly rounded, to prevent gouging.
Available in three lengths, to level any fingerboard.
Works on stainless frets, too!
All of our tools are suitable for use on stainless-steel fretwire, with the exception of our Fret Tang Nippers. Modern stainless-steel fretwire is known to be harder than the traditional nickel-silver blends, but our own shop experience indicates the wire does not cause premature wear of files or sandpapers.
