Industrial diamond-coated steel blocks. Excellent for putting a razor edge on chisels and knives, we discovered they're also great for leveling frets!

These diamond-coated steel blocks are manufactured as tool sharpeners. Available in three models, the cutting surfaces are a bit finer than our other diamond-coated fretting tools. They always remain flat, and won't break, chip or crack.

Sold individually or SAVE when you buy the set of all three fret levelers.

Each leveler is 6" x 2" x 1/4" (152.40mm x 50.80mm x 6.35mm).

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.

Very useful

I found the diamond fret leveler (Fine) very useful for finishing and polishing fret ends, as well as smoothing out the string marks from the tops of the frets. It becomes more difficult to use as you move up the fretboard - perhaps a narrower version would be more useful. However, a very useful tool - for lots of things.

Diamond fractions serve for 1-2 guitars. After this, diamond fret levelers is going to trash...

perfect for cleaning up frets after filing them for a fret level

It's hard to use unless you make a handle for it. But once I did, and after a few fret level jobs, it made cleaning up the frets easier. I love it

Diamond Fret Levelers

I use mine to sharpen my carving knives. They work great to get the proper angle on the knife or tool edges. No limit to good uses.

Exactly what I looked for

I bought the set of 3 sharpeners. I use them to sharpen my tools and they are the best sharpeners you can find: they remain flat and are very durable. If you want to use them for sharpening buy the set of 3, if you want to use them for fret leveling it's sufficient that you buy the coarse one.

I bought the coarse version (can't imagine what i would need 800 or 1800 grit fret levelers for... (anyone?). I made a handle for it and epoxied it on because there is no way you're gonna use this comfortably without some way to grip it. Very useful for light leveling jobs and i use it to clean up the marks the fret leveling file leaves behind.

Sore Fingers

I was getting sore fingers from playing my strat as the fret ends were sticking out slightly. The Diamond Fret leveler did the job in no time flat (sorry about the pun) and I'm back to enjoying my strat again!
