krazyderek Posted May 3, 2004 Report Share Posted May 3, 2004 Up until now i've just been using jewelers files for rounding frets after leveling, but it was kinda time consuming so i got one of those cheaper 36$ fret files (with the wooden ball handles) to round the files for me, i figured even for that price it should still do a decent job alot faster then i can with a regular file.... boy was i wrong, that thing sucks i was using the medium file insert, on my medium frets and all it did was scratch the crap out of the fret, barely rounded it at all, tried the other 2 sizes but they didn't fit, so i remember someone talking about using wax in the file to get better results, so i gave that a try once i put the medium file insert back in, it kinda improved but by then i was frusterated, and just went back to my jewelers file to clean it up before it got any worse. Question: how do you use a fret file? Is there some kinda special trick i'm missing here? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
