The Guitar Nut Filing Set set is a versatile tool kit for marking the string positions, filing the nut slots, precise adjustment of string action and relieving the slots for correct intonation across a broad range of string gauges.

 

3-PART SET CONTENTS:

Tool #1 -  Feathered Edge String Groove Saw

Tool #2 -  Rhombus Diamond File

Tool #3 -  Pointed Oval Diamond File

 

TOOL #1 - FEATHERED EDGE STRING GROOVE SAW

The saw is manufactured in our workshop. The tool has a replaceable feathered edge blade for creating precise marking grooves and narrow strings slots. After marking the string positions, the slots for high treble strings (typically .008"- 0.012") can be produced with the saw by increasing the depth of cut or by canting the saw left and right.

 

SELECTED USA MADE DIAMOND FILES

The diamond files are of high quality USA manufacture and are specifically designed for intricate work by jewellers, engineers and gunsmiths for access to different sized concave surfaces. This makes them especially suited to the precision required when filing guitar string slots and adaptable to the large range of string diameter gauges available. The files included have been specially selected after extensive research and testing of the many different profiles available.

 

TOOL #2 - RHOMBUS DIAMOND FILE

The file can be used for widening the string slots (typically 0.010"-0.016"). The file profile is straight and cross-section is diamond making it useful for de-burring, chamfering edges and adding relief to the rear and sides of the string slots.

 

TOOL #3 - POINTED OVAL DIAMOND FILE

The profile is tapered and cross section is oval. The tool can be used for the intermediate string slots (typically 0.016"-0.032") and the bass string slots (typically 0.032"-0.053") by canting the file left and right. Finishing each slot should be performed with short strokes of the file and attention to the best position along the file edge for the particular string gauge.
