I need to get a set of nut files to make a new bone nut for my 12-string. Found some alternatives on ebay , do anybody have any tips on which are the best buy, or other alternatives? I've looked at StewMac and they're more expensive,but maybe better? :confused:

I don't have any first hand experience with this, but in general I can say I have NEVER been sorry buying the highest quality tools available.

Like they say, when you buy the best, you only cry once.

I couldn't find the exact Ebay transaction but I picked up a set of Nut files that are basically just a dozen Feeler Gages with teeth. Great for small adjustments and I did a reverse strung 12 string nut with them. I think it about $60 for the whole set.

Wow.

They are kinda pricey but I guess they would last forever.

The StewMac ones are really good, I had a set for years.
