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.

Fret Beveling File

The number one complaint that I see the most of are protruding frets or just a rough fret board on a guitar, banjo ect. With this tool I can quickly remedy the problem with out the worry of marring the neck. It is very fast and does a wonderful job. Would not be without it.

Just Buy It

For a long time, I was planning on making one of these myself. I never seemed to get around to it and and my fret work suffered. I finally just bought a pair of these; they work great and I wish I had purchased them a long time ago.

Fret Bevelling File

Works fine and much better than trying to use a straight flat file. I find working on about 4 frets at a time is better than trying to extend over the length of the fingerboard. This way I don't slip off the fret ends and across the frets.

help is here!

like others, i have been doing filing by hand. This tool, has paid for itself on the first job! I do a LOT of fret jobs, now I snip ends (with end nippers) and bevel away, perfect first time. everyone who does frets NEEDS this tool!!
