Works as advertised 

By

I ordered this to add a small ramp to my string through uke bridges which have a 1/16" hole.
It works well and should last a while.

After using the .030" cord, I came back and cleaned up the look of the (tiny) ramps with a small tapered file which gave it a final clean look.

I can see me using this in a few other areas of the built to.

Wish I had bought these sooner.

I've looked at these for quite some time. Now that I tried them I wish I had bought them the first time I saw them. These are really nice for that special area, and the sizes are pretty close for most work.

Solved My Les Paul Tuning Problems

Verified Buyer


I was about to put this guitar in the closet because the D and G would not stay in tune. I was going to get a set of nut files but was encouraged to try this first. I'm glad I did.

Difficult to smooth sides

By

Verified Buyer


This product works well enough to smooth the bottom of whatever task is at hand but it is difficult to smooth the sides of any slot. A far better solution is to wrap a nut file or similar with the 3M Polishing Papers. The polishing papers are available in a greater range of graduations and are available in finer grits, too.
