Filing the nut
I wanted to modify a nut for slightly heavier strings, so I needed a file for the job. As I didn't have the right size available, I had to find an alternative. Maybe this is old news, but a small drill and some sandpaper make a very suitable file in virtually any size.
Yeah, I do too. I use a chainsaw file sometimes as well.
For light mods, this works nicely. Personally, I prefer emery cloth as it conforms to the bit without creasing. Then again, I'm spoiled as I own a set of nut files.
That's a really good idea. I have a set of gauged nut files, but they are for guitar and I don't have ones big enough for bass strings, so I'll try your idea. Thanks for the tip.
Great idea! I have been wanting to buy a set of nut files, but don't have the money to spend.
I do, however, have a huge set of various sized files (inch, metric and letter designations).
I like the idea of using emery cloth, too.
We also need to adjust for the thickness of the emery cloth/sand paper, for the overall size.
FWIW, I found the Dremel Micro Bit kit to contain more of the useful sizes.
