Diamond File for General Fret Work

Diamond files - which consist a coating of industrial diamonds embedded in a flat metal surface - give an extremely smooth finish and also have the advantage that they cut equally well in any direction of travel. This allows a back and forth motion to concentrate the abrasion on a particular area and keep the file always in contact with the fret, which helps achieve better accuracy of cut.
These files have all sharp edges ground off so they can be used for a variety of jobs such as removing high spots, rounding off fret ends after bevelling and filing out reft wear. As always, before using any type of abrasive tools on a guitar it is recommended suitable protection. Ideally use our ultra thin hardened steel protector strips (see our other items) to protect the fretboard and allow smooth motion of the file.
Diamond Files are really the best surfaces developed by mankind for abrasion - the resulting surface is by far the smoothest hand filed surface possible - hence less finishing and polishing!

SIX FretBoard Protectors . 16mm, 20mm and 40mm wide each with 2.3 or 3.1 slot
Slot Width Guide: 2.3mm wide (for MEDIUM frets) or 3.1mm wide (for JUMBO frets)

Guitar Bridge Pin Puller

This pin puller has been designed to avoid any part of the tool touching the bridge wood so that it will not scuff and bruise the bridge wood surface. Ther is a secure mechanism that clamps the pin, by tightening a clamp bolt, which means the pin is pulled without the puller jaws slipping off.
Achieving this has involved a simple design using a clamping jaw mechanism. The jaws need to be only 1mm thick to get into the recess below the pin head. To make such jaws strong enough has required the use of the high performance Engineering grade reinforced nylon. This is an incredibly strong plastic material, which is gentle on surfaces but also incredibly strong - its also used for things like tyre levers, levers for removing car trim and mini propellors.
The result is a new design of pin puller , never seen on the market before, that works extremely well.
Main Features:
This pin puller tool provides an efficient and easy to use solution to extracting bridge pins.
1.The jaws are adjustable so when over the pin they can be tightened to ensure jaws fit on the pin - usually between the pin head and the pin skirt.
2. Made of incredibly strong glass reinforced nylon based material.
3. Makes pin pulling easy - even for the most stubborn pins.
4. No part of the puller has to touch the bridge wood, so minimises the risk of scuffing the surface of the guitar.
I make custom bridge pins and have always worried about how they are pulled from the guitar. I have designed and manufactured a pin puller that works extremely well. It has been tested on literally 100s of different pins and has succeeded in pulling all of them - no matter how firmly pushed into the pin slot they are.

Guitar String Action Gauge

The most reliable way of measuring the action of a guitar is to compare the height of the string to something of known height also sitting on the frets . This is best done visually without touching the string or the gauge.
The gauge is basically a thick aluminium sheet with steps milled into it that are 0.1mm lower each step - the steps are 5mm long. The steps provide a very accurate visual height reference that can be placed anywhere on the fretboard. A little handle has been milled on each end of the gauge - used when the guitar gauge is positioned by both hands and the guitar is in normal playing position. Alternatively with the guitar laid down horizontally the gauge can rest on the guitar fretboard without to support it by hand - this means you can carefully and adjust the gauge position and carefully judge the action without having to hold anything in position. An advantage as then you cannot possibly change the string position by accidentally touching it.
A typical use is to place the gauge behind the lowE string at the 12th fret and slide the gauge along so its height matches the string height then you have a direct measurement of the action.at the 12th fret - which is typcially 2.3mm for lowE and 1.8mm for high E. The gauge covers these regions of height in 0.1mm increments and so offers a very precise way of assessing the action..

Guitar Neck Rest. English Hardwood. 240mm

Constructed from Beech with Cork on neck contact surface with softwood ramp This is a simple design of neck rest consisting of two parts
1. The part that the guitar neck sits in. This is a "V" shape cork surface attached to a heavy block made from Beech Hardwood.
2. A softwood ramp. This provides an incline of about 20mm in 240mm. The hardwood neck rest can be placed on the ramp to give slightly angle the neck upwards.
It weighs about 850g.
The back of the neck sits in a stable position in the V and the cork provides a good surface that will not scratch the guitar and not let it slip. I have also put a layer of cork across the base of the hardwood rest, so it does not slip on the ramp or whatever surface it rests on.
It takes care of the supporting interface to the guitar neck - the height it supports the back of the neck is about 40mm. further packing (simple sheet wood) to get the height to match a particular guitar may be needed.

2) the 75mm and 150mm sizes can be used as smaller guitar OR as head support on standard guitars;
3) the larger 370mm and 440mm are suitable for bass guitars.
