Inexpensive and effective
27.10.2016
I bought this file thinking that I would buy some cheap option to get started on fretwork and then buy a proper one when I got good at it... Actually, I've done many setups by now and this file is withstanding the test of time with no issues whatsoever

It does the job pretty well and works fine on any Medium to Jumbo frets, and will last for a long time.

Pros:
- Quality file that fits 80 to 90% of frets sizes out there
- I like the cable a lot and find it really comfortable for the task. Considering that you shouldn't get too comfortable while you crown the frets (so you stop and don't file away too much), this provides you with the right amount of comfort.
- Being double-sided, it ensures that the file will really last for a long time
- The file is very long, which means you can cover the whole fret surface while crowning, without hitting the guitar neck with the file's cable

Cons:
Nothing that I can think of...

In sum, I would much rather buy another one of these when this one reaches its end-of-life, than getting a very expensive one that maybe will last for the same amount of time.

Usable quality tool
Mike.s, 22.10.2020
I lost my ridiulously expensive fret file a while back and have been shaping frets by hand ever since so i finally decided to get another file.
This one was comparatively cheap but I found it to be of a usable quality and expect with proper use and cleaning for it to last well.
This is one of those tools that an experienced luthier can use on most fret profiles though not something i recommend just anyone to use on their best guitar.

very reliable!
DroidXXVII, 16.07.2020
as soon as i got it, i started working on the frets on my older guitars. this fret file did the job as it was supposed to, never chattered on the frets when i was recrowning them. i have used it on nickel frets, haven't tried it yet on stainless steel frets. but so far, so good!

the only gripe i have with it is the handle. if recrowning frets on a set-neck or a bolt-on that's still mounted to the body, you will find it quite difficult to maneuver as you get closer to the body. if working on an unmounted neck (or an unmounted fretboard), this tool works wonders.

absolute top notch product!
