Fret End Dressing File

Product Description

An improved file for dressing the ends of the frets, after they've been installed, trimmed flush and beveled. With one thin edge ground "safe," and the other rounded over, this file cuts only where it needs to: on both sharp corners of the unground thin edge, and on both of the wider toothed cutting surfaces. 

The cutting surfaces smooth the fret end bevel, and the sharp corners nip off the sharp burrs at the edge of the fret bevel where it meets the edge of the neck. With the safe edge facing down, the cutting surfaces of this little file do a good job of rounding over and shaping the fret ends.

File dimensions are .062" x .125" x 6", with 3" cutting surfaces.


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.
