When frets are installed into a fingerboard they are never completely straight even if great care was taken in installing them. Therefore the frets must be levelled or 'dressed' so that they are straight and the guitar will play with minimal fret buzz.
These diamond-coated fret levelling files are precision machined to be perfectly flat. The fret levelling file is used to lightly grind down the tops of all the frets so that they are straight to each other. Once they are level they must then be crowned using a fret file.
It is best to use long oval-shaped strokes with the levelling file rather than a straight up and down action. You can tell when the frets are level when the tops of every fret are scratched from the file the whole way across.
