Fret Bevelling File 190mm Made in USA by Browns Guitar Factory
Bevel fret ends to a 35-degree angle - Made in USA by Browns Guitar Factory - Low-friction Polyethylene block - Reversible file for extended use - 190mm (7-1/2) filing length - Works on all fret sizes and materials - Hardened Steel file - Fast and precise Bevel fret ends with ease! The Fret Beveling File allows you to quickly bevel fret ends to a perfect 35 degree angle. It takes the guess work out of finding the right angle and gives a more consistent result than working by eye. The low-friction plastic block glides over the frets while the hardened steel file cuts back the fret. The file can be removed and turned as it wears out, giving 4 cutting surfaces and a lifespan of dozens of fingerboards. The steel file works great on Nickel, EVO and Stainless-steel frets. The lifespan of the file will be reduced slightly when used on Stainless.
To Use: 1 Check the that the file won't hit the top of the guitar, if it will do not use it. 2 If the fret surfaces are already dressed and polished tape up the face of the frets to avoid scuffing them with the block. 3 Sit the block on the top of the frets with the file against the fret ends. For radiused fingerboards either hold the block horizontal, or slightly angled to match the curve. Either is fine, just keep this consistent.
4 Run the file back and forward, grinding down the corners of the frets until the bevels just meet the corner of the fretboard. 5 Finish off with a sanding block with 240 grit sandpaper and our Fret End Dressing File.
