Fret-Leveling File

This tool I actually made myself (no, it's NOT from Stew-Mac!). I got the idea from an old little booklet I had from many years ago, called something like "Do-It-Yourself Guitar Repair", and so I made this little tool. All I did was break off the handle-end of a flat mill file (stuck it in a vise and hammered away till it broke!), and glue it with epoxy to a piece of wood. I also rounded the ends of the file with a disc sander. It works great for leveling the frets after you've installed them.
