Diamond Fret File

This is a file which rounds the tops of frets after you have inserted the frets into the fingerboard. It sure is easier to do that job with this tool than the old way I used to do it, by using a triangular file and slowly (and carefully) trying to crown the frets evenly with that. This file has two diamond-impregnated concave edges, one for a narrow fret and one for a wider fret. It is available from Stewart-MacDonald's Guitar Shop Supply.
