good video on smoothing fret ends

Excellent demonstration, if one has the correct (but very expensive) files. I was lucky to acquire a few very fine (crosshatch) flat machinist files, some with flat edges. I use painter's tape. My method[?] is far cruder than that shown in this video.

What he didn't talk about was how to refinish any scuffs on the wood... it was mentioned in the beginning, but he didn't follow up on that.

<edit> On an economic side note, ukes I've purchased the $2-300 range need very little, if any, fret end filing. Every sub-100 has.
