- 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.
MM or CM to Fractions of Inches
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.
This is the same tool that other web-sites are selling for $175, the EXACT SAME TOOL. The TOOL itself is GREAT, takes a lot of time off of sanding down a NUT to the correct height. After sanding down a ZER-GLIDE NUT that took over 45 minutes, I had to buy this tool. I will NEVER WASTE my time sanding down a NUT without this TOOL.
Would have given it 5 but that would have been too easy.
