A member here posted his method to refretting. All I can remember is he made the tool to chamfer the ends of the frets using 2 blocks of wood and a file I think. And to make them smooth, he used some sort of sanding sponge.

The end result looked good, and making the tools were cheap.

I just can't find it.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?
I know the one you mean but I cant remember who posted it.

I can tell you it was a block of 4x4 with the file set in one corner at 35 degrees though.
The whole tutorial including the bevel tool and sanding sponge stuff can be found here

There's an easier way to make the file jig. Set your tablesaw blade to 35 degrees, take a block of wood (I used 1 3/4" thick maple but anything should do it as long as it's about 1 1/2" thick like a 2x4 or something), set the fence to make a slot where you want the file, make the cut, check to see if the file fits or not if it's too big move the fence a little and cut again until it fits snug. If the file is loose use a couple pieces of thin cardboard as shims.
