Stewmac has a set of gauged nut slotting files for ukulele, on sale for $42.52. Are these worth the money? There is only 3 files.

Thanks

Do you need those three files? If so it may be worth buying. I use my guitar files.

It also depends on your situation as John said. If you're only cutting a few nuts slots ever perhaps not.

If you're a commercial business repairing guitars, ukes and the like absolutely. I use gauged nut slot files and have every gauge out there and I am replacing files from wearing them out every year or so.
