    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!
