An absolute must in the shop

I'm replacing my old set of Needle Files that are lost somewhere; I use them when I'm shaping my head stocks.

Wonderful to have

I needed them in a pinch to slot a mandolin bridge. I got them here in ample time and got the job done. These files will work great from slotting to fret crowning and, everything in between. Just the right size too. As always, Stew Mac to the rescue ! Thanks Guys and Gals !

Great Files! Smaller than the "Hardware Store" types!

A good file set for accurate work in small areas where the bigger files just can't get to without scuffing the areas around it. These are much smaller than the needle files that I bought at the hardware store. Nice set!

Fine tuning

By

Verified Buyer


If you decide to add a bone nut you will need needle files to complete the job. Large files are fine for shaping saddles, but string slots need to be precise in width and depth for optimum playing. With fine files not much material is removed with each stroke, which helps you control the slot depth and width.

These are a bit more handy than the luthiers set i got as well.. Good for removing burs from saddles or frets, rough shaping a nut also, then finish it off with sand paper at least thats what I do...

budget beware

By

Verified Buyer


These files work fine. You can find cheaper files without the rubber grips at your local hardware store but if you are trying to save $5 on a $15 item, you might want to find a cheaper hobby... or wrap some budget files in masking tape to save your poor hands from a few blisters. Recommended.
