Rated 4 out of 5 by from What the doctor ordered I am a mechanic(45plus years). I paint a car(for myself) about once every 15years or so. Well I painted my Miata and wouldn't you know it, I had a few runs. This new two part paint dries like metal and a quick sanding was out of the question. I purchased these nibblers and they did a fine job(even if I didn't). They are mounted on sturdy wood blocks and are really nice.I am glad I came across these little tools.They saved the day for me. Ordering from eastwood went well and they shipped fast.I have purchased from eastwood in the past and I will in the future. These would be a great addition to any ones shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fine Nib File - This is a great file. Before this file I was using the old school razor blade method. Its risky and you can cuts edges if your not careful. The fine nib file works great and it tends to leave the flat paint alone. It just focuses on the mound. Just make to to push in the direction as indicated on top. Curved Nib File - Just as good as the flat, however gets those curved areas that the flat can't. Course Nib File - Only use on heavy runs or anything else major. This one takes a lot of material off quickly. Great tool but just be careful. Very happy with product. Its not much to these tools. Wish the price was about $10 cheaper. Nothing else like it out there though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most important tool for DIY painters I have to admit, I was a little skeptical when I bought these because I was worried they would scratch the surface too much. But after using these, I was blown away. Took the runs and nibs right out of the paint in minutes. I mean BAD runs. I used 2000 grit instead of 1500 and it removed the shaved parts of the clear coat just fine. Took my time and the finish was great. I also used it to repair a cracking section of clear coat by shaving to better clear, sanding, and blending with new clearcoat and U-Pol clear welder. Worked great. I use the fine files for just about everything. If you want to smooth out paint runs that you are re-shooting, use the coarse file, and then prime/paint. Don't use the curved file on anything other than a slightly curved panel. You probably won't use that file much at all, if at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Nibbers did better than I thought they would. Takes a little practice but handy to have and they work great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from mostly good The only thing I do not like is when using the finest nib file be very careful it will scratch deeply into the paint at both sides of the file.

Application
