  • Guitar Nut and Saddle Sander
  • Quality contruction - aluminum body with brass knobs
  • Accomadate both acoustic saddles and nuts
  • Helps sand bottom square
  • Easy to use

The Nut and Saddle Sander is designed to hold a nut or an acoustic saddle so you can easily create a square bottom surface. 

After installing the nut or saddle, slide the sander across a strip of sandpaper attached to a flat surface. You are all done when all wheels start to turn. Use the two screws on top to remove the precise amount of material. Those two knobs can be adjusted independently to precisely adjust the tilt of an acoustic bridge saddle.

This tool is typically used after shaping a saddle or nut to its final shape.

    Valuable Tool

    Posted by Allan on Apr 1, 2020

    I botched more than a few nuts and saddles prior to owning this tool, usually by over-sanding or getting the shape wrong. I prefer doing my own guitar maintenance but it is a learning process. This sander has been a leap forward. Quality build. Take care not to turn the upper adjustment screws unintentionally while gripping and sliding the tool.

    Saddle sander/leveler

    This has to be the best, I have found for leveling the Nuts, bridges, Saddles, and other items small that will fit in it. Many places that has this tool want a lot more for it, I'm glad I found this site. they have many very helpful and quality tools used by and for Luthiers and hobbyists.

    Guitar Nut & Saddle Sander

    This thing is a work of art and can not see how the one from the guys in Athens can be any better for twice the price. Unless theirs is Stainless Steel and gold plated hardware. This sander is completely top notch and a real steal for this price. I can't believe I almost spent, wait they dropped the price to $152.00 . Still not worth the extra for my use. I do see that the alignment marks are milled into the body and yours they are a decal. Theirs is made in Italy and that adds to the cost.

    indispensable

    I've had this one for a year now and consider it ling since paid for. If you have the skills to know what a saddle is supposed to do you'll figure this tool out in about two minutes. Take short, gentle strokes on 220 paper to ensure a flat bottom to your nuts and saddles, or anything else that needs be flat and will fit.

    Kinda Floppy

    Can't keep the bottom of the nut flat while sanding. It's like sanding freehand until the wheels stop it, and it still may not be flat.

    Admin - The nut should protrude farther than the wheels. It won't roll on the wheel until the nut is flat. That is how you know you sanded the nut(or saddle) far enough.

    Works like a charm and the price can't be beat when comparison shopping. I'm not sure how we went without this particular tool in our shop for as long as we did. If you don't have one get it....you won't be sorry! The only negative observation is that the side thumb screws utilize clock-wise wound springs and we found that when tightening they tend to spread at the base and can hit the sanding surface. We rectified this with replacement springs we had on hand in the shop. The fine depth adjustment is accurate and we've been able to save considerable time for our nut installs on our line of production replacement necks we manufacture.

    nut and saddle sanderf

    I work frequently with vintage bone and fossil ivory, which can be brittle. Assuming the saddle slot is properly done flat, an uneven saddle bottom can cause the saddle to crack under tension True, not very often, but it has happened (and all that work down the drain). More common is a saddle not making full contact with the saddle slot bottom with the concurrent loss of tone. Plus this one is MUCH less expensive than the other place.
