My nut needs shaving

The strings are nowhere near the top surface of the nut.

The strings are nowhere near the top surface of the nut.

So the first thing I notice after going through the chapter on nuts is that the Indie’s nut is too deep and possibly muting the strings.  The strings as you might be able to see are completely buried in the plastic of the nut and according to Dan Erlewine (How to make your electric guitar play great), and I bow to his superior knowledge here, the groove should be just enough to keep the string in place but certainly not enough to smother the string so, I am going to have to shave some off the top of the nut!

My next quest then is to find out what tools are best to accomplish this what appears to be a fairly straightforward task with.

Above is a picture of the nut as it is.
