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 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.

Awesome tool

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 :)

Bevel until you drop

I can't imagine beveling fret ends without this tool now.

Nice but could be upgraded

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.

This tool works pretty good, and doesn't mar up the binding like I thought it might on my L5, Les Paul, or Taylor T5. It's not adjustable, so you can't set the angle you want. But it's certainly great for a shrunken fingerboard where the frets are scraping up your hand.

Perfect tool for perfect results

What would I do without StewMac? This tool is foolproof and, being quite the fool, it has saved me many a headache. It puts on the perfect bevel every time. Amazing.

Easy Bevel

OH YES..... the fret beveling file takes the guess work out of beveling and gives a consistent bevel. :-O)) I'd like to see a fine grit insert that would polish the bevel.
