Thank you for this clever tip! I had a couple treble B and E strings pinging but was hesitant to clean them up with the nut files for fear of making them deeper. I already had a few of these mini bits and was able to clean up the problem B and E nut slots without making them any deeper using a #76 for E and #72 for B. Just pulled them thru lightly and then worked in a little tri-flow lub with them. Problem solved!
