Gauged Nut Slotting File Set for Mandolin

About This Item

The right gauges for cutting and shaping string slots on mandolins. Four files in each set.

Our tempered edge-cut nut files produce round-bottom slots for nuts and saddles. Ensure your strings seat properly in the nut without buzzing!

Each chrome-alloy steel file has twin 4" cutting edges. Among our most popular tools, these professional files help you get the job done quickly and correctly.

StewMac tech advisors specify these sets to match your string gauge:

Match the file to the string gauge
Choose a file of the same size as the string, or no more than a few thousandths wider. By rocking the file side to side, you can widen the slot to fit a slightly wider string.

My first attempt at setting up an inexpensive mandolin, and the nut files I ordered from Ste-Mac did exactly what was needed. Very happy with quality and service from Ste-Mac.
