Hosco double edged nut slotting files are massively popular the world over, this set is made up of gauges catered towards electric guitars (but can of course be used on any guitar) and mainly aimed at the following gauges: .010"/.026", .013"/.036" and .017"/.046", having a gauged set makes slotting nuts considerably quicker and easier. Slots can be made slightly wider by rocking the file from side to side when filing the slot and these files are also great for slotting Tune-o-matic saddles. Please note the sizes listed on the files are a guide for the string gauges, they can cut wider on the smaller gauges (especially .010"), if you want files of exact thicknesses we recommend our Hosco Gauged Nut Slotting Files Set of 10 which is available as a separate product.

Returned for refund

Flat bottom cut not rounded and even the .10 gauge is to wide for the lighter gauge strings . For the price these needed to be much better .
Returned and refund was issued without delay or hassle at least .

Hosco Double Edged Nut Slotting Files

These nut files are very good! They're a bit expensive, but they are well made and appear accurate in their slot making ability.
Glued to Music supplied them, pretty much by return of post. In my experience they are a first class supplier. Highly recommended!
