Half Size Fret Bevel File.
This is a smaller sized bevel file with Bevel Angle of 35 degrees and is aimed at shorter scale length instruments such as ukuleles, banjos and mandolins, or for detailed work on the higher, closer frets on a full size guitar.
There is a 75mm long diamond file mounted in a holder which allows it to be guided along the fretboard with the file cutting an accurate bevel on the fret ends. The handle is constructed from very low friction, high grade engineering polymer.
These files last for many fretboards and are equally long lasting on stainless frets and normal nickel silver frets.
• 35 degrees Angled Bevel File
• 75mm File Length
• Fine Grit Diamond File Fittted
The tool provides an efficient and easy to use solution to getting the fret ends cleanly cut to a specific angle. We have experimented with many designs for these and have come up with this solution which has the following main features:
• For beveling the fret end the file is set at 35 degrees.
• Very comfortable to hold file.
• The file protrudes from the holder so you can see how the cut is progressing.
• Changeable Files. Long or short files of different grits can be installed.
• Smooth base made of low friction polymer, with bevelled at the ends. This base makes it easy to pass over the fret tops without bumping or damage.
• Robust construction from highest grade engineering polymer and professional quality diamond file.
• Suitable for Stainless Steel frets
Fret Beveling in General.
The main advantage of using a Bevel File is that a really consistent professional job is achieved where all the fret ends are at the same angle. This main point about bevelling is to make sure there are no sharp edges or uncomfortable fret ends which hamper playing. If a fret end is too long then it disturbs the feel of the neck as the players moves around the fretboard; if the fret end angle is too shallow then the string can easily start to slip off the end of the fret.
It is also surprising just how much of the fretboard space is used up by the bevels - a 45 degree bevel will use about 1mm of the fret wire and so reduce a 43mm neck to 41mm playable width. These bevel files can be made to any angle as low as zero and to a maximum of 60 degrees (please enquire).
The cutting file is a fine grit diamond file which leaves a good finish and all that is needed is the final light sanding to remove any scratches or uncomfortable edges and finally a polish.
