Making a glue scraper/saw

Dan Erlewine went to the Columbus Guitar Show to sell some fixer-uppers. Nobody bought this beautiful 1930s Kay Deluxe; its neck joint problem must have seemed like too much work. The guitar came back home and volunteered for this Trade Secret about making a tiny saw for cleaning old glue joints!

I like these the best out of all the nut files I have used.

easy to use, no chipping, smooth cut, smaller size gets larger when moving from side to side and rolling the file. Perfect upgrade from the small skinny files.

great  saw, bought 2 of the  .010" width

sharp, good grip,clan cutting. I use .010 to cut slots just above depth, then switch to gauged files to finish each nut slot. with forward cut you can also clean up routed bouts easily.

I purchased this 0+010ö (0+25mm) saw to cut the initial starting slots in bone and tusk nuts prior to using fret files, these files are very accurate and sharp and are ideal to cut slots in nuts also cutting down nuts to fit various guitar widths, an excellent saw and very good value for money.

does a perfect detailed job. Hope it stays as sharp as it is now for a while.

super sharp and percise

I use the 0.010 one all the time for nut work. Because it's so sharp and clean I used my first one for other jobs as well - not a good idea. The plade isn't just supersharp, it's also very delicate and looses a tooth easily, so treat it accordingly!
