  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

    does anyone have any experience with this file?

    http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Frettin...d_crowning/1/Fret_Beveling_Files.html#details

    i am looking to flush the ends of the frets on one of my basses with the fretboard. they'll also need to be bevelled and rounded, but i am thinking this file would be a good start and was hoping that one of you fine craftsman would have some advice on whether i should give this file a shot.

    thanks

    thanks for the response. i'll have to go the StewMac route since i live in an apartment and have had to get rid of most of my tools due to space/noise limitations.
     
  3. bah, I just use a mill file and hold it at roughly at a 45 deg angle until it shaves off a bit of the fingerboard. Works wonders!
