    I was planning on getting some (prob from Stew Macs) but this is a very attractive price! Thanks.

    Thanks very much for posting this. I already have a set from Stew Mac. Have you used both so that you can comment on the similarities or differences between the two? If these are a great deal better, I'd spring for them.

    I have one of Grizzly’s small band saws, very nice quality. Nut files look good, I already have a Stewmac set.

    I have both and don't give it a thought to which I choose... both are excellent.... and at 8 files for 65 bux.. it's kinda a no brainer.. IF you're serious... if not . . . keep on keeping on with the welding tip cleaners, wondering why things aren't 'zactly what ya were hoping for...:p

    Great deal, if I needed more I'd spring for this!

    Compared to Stew Mac the main difference is price, but lately Stew Mac omits manufacturer origin and I suspect they get Chinese look alike copies of the name brand products, then sell them for 50% more than the originals they look just like.

    I must keep on hand a vast array of different sizes to accommodate many different sets of strings,, so something like those wouldn't be practical for me.. but... the guy that owns Grizzly is a very accomplished luthier too... and I rather doubt he would be offering junk..

    Awesome, gonna order a set. Always wanted a set but they are so expensive for someone who just wants it for maintenance on their own guitars lol. Thanks for the heads up.

    I've already got those files, they are great. IIRC I got them on ebay for around that price or a bit cheaper years back. Wouldn't hesitate to replace them if needed with the same item.

    Thanks for the heads-up Ron :).

    Picked up a set to replace/supplement my old Hosco 3 pc. set.

    Grizzly also has free shipping on $75 buck purchase. Got a nice precision ground 24" steel straight-edge plus the files for under $100 bucks shipped. Nice :).






    Best Regards,
    Geo.
