Details

This wooden-handled file features three interchangeable 1-7/8" hollow burrs for recrowning a wide range of fret widths, from basses and guitars to mandolins.

The 4-1/2" long steel shank is angled for efficiency and clearance over the guitar body. Useful for a wide range of fret widths, from basses and guitars to mandolins.

#0685 Includes 1 wooden-handled file and 3 burrs in these sizes:
- Narrow, 3/32"
- Medium, 1/8"
- Wide, 3/16"

Replacement burrs sold separately.

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 and Fret Cutters. 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.

Poor tool

This tool will go dull very quickly, and the quality is bad, don't buy it.

This is a good tool but the way the burrs are fixed is horrible.
