Fret Beveling File

About This Item

Low-friction files for fret ends.
Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of both files.

The Fret Beveling File is the fast, accurate way to put a uniform 35° bevel on fret ends after installing new frets. With a quick, smooth motion, this file angles the fret ends and makes them ready for fret dressing and polishing. Available in either 3-3/4" or 7-1/2" filing lengths.

This 1-1/2" x 1-3/4" block (two lengths are available) holds a removable fine-tooth flat file at the proper 35° angle to bevel all the fret ends along the edge of the fingerboard. The block is made of low-friction material for smooth, easy filing. The 3-3/4" model is for short fingerboards (mandolins, for example), and for spot-filing partial refrets. It's also useful for working on used instruments with necks that aren't straight.

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.

This does what it is supposed to. I only wish the file was set at a slightly steeper angle.

Easy and Simple

After purchasing this tool I realized how simple it is and I probably could have made it myself with a block of wood and a file. It's a very simple tool and somewhat expensive. Nevertheless I'm glad I got it. It works great. About 20 strokes on each side of the frets and they are beveled in a few minutes. Follow it up with a concave fret end file for a pro fret job.

I love mine, just did a fretboard over the weekend and it literally took 10mins to get all frets from a 90' angle to a perfect bevel :)

Nice but could be upgraded

By
(Customer's Reviews)


This beveling file is nice, well made and work as it's supposed to. But, that would be great to have a 90¦ angle in addition to the 35¦ to file the frets flush to the fretboard on a freshly fretted neck.
