Fret file set for crowning w/rubber handle grips
DescriptionOur FFS fret crowing file set contains 3 tool steel files. There is a narrow, a medium and a wide file each with two cutting edges. The cutting edge of the medium and wide file extends to the flat surface so it is necessary to tape off the fingerboard (always a good idea anyway).
Each file in this set measures 7 3/8" long x 5/8" wide with a 4" cutting edge. The colored rubber handles enable you to get a good grip when filing.
