These Nut files will be on sale starting June 3rd, at Grizzly, for only $64.95. I think I gave over $80 for my set and I have no regrets!
They will have Fret crowning files and another set of nut files on sale too, also starting the same day.

Hopefully someone can benefit from this.

I bought a set of those last time they were on sale. I promptly broke the 0.010. I use the others to suppliment my SM files - there are some intermediate sizes that I find handy.

FWIW it is not much of a sale. They want $15 to ship them to California, including some bogus "regulatory fee". By the time they've got you at checkout they would set you back $87.
You can actually get them a couple of bucks cheaper FROM Grizzly just by ordering them from Amazon with free shipping.

When I visited the link previous to the "sale" I thought I saw the price listed at $79.95, now I see the "list price" at $99.95. Did anyone else notice this or am I mistaken?

Yeah, I don't remember having to pay that much for shipping. With tax and shipping, I'm back up to about $83. You're right, it isn't a very good sale. My bad guys.

It may not be a great sale- but it's still cheaper than the other vendor's I checked, so thanks for the heads up!
