I've cut a couple nuts with regular files and they came out alright but it's time consuming and frustrating. I want to get a set of real nut files but of course I want to spend as little as possible to get some decent tools. They won't be seeing a lot of use, at the moment I just want to make a new nut for one guitar, I'll probably do 2 or 3 more in the next year.

I looked on ebay and found the "Norman Guitar Nut File System" and it's the cheapest set I've seen, but it also looks like someone just cut some slots in a gap gauge. Is that the case? If so I'll just do that myself and save $40...

You can use a set of feeler gauges, as they have sizes marked on them already, but...the Norman ones do seem to be very good and cheap to boot. I would probably go for the normans.
