Files Sets


File sets are a group of file tools in different shapes and sizes that come in a set. These sets contain files that are used to remove fine amounts of material from a workpiece. A file is mostly handheld and is a length of metal with teeth cut into at least one of its sides that is used for shaping or smoothing off a piece of material by cutting away some of it. Files are shaped rectangular, square, triangular or round cross-section.


Engineers Files


Engineer files also known as hand files are a type of hand tool used to smooth, deburr and shape a range of materials including metals and wood whilst removing any unwanted material after cutting or sharpening. Files are shaped rectangular, square, triangular or round cross-section and include teeth cut into at least one of its sides with three common grades including coarse, bastard, second cut and smooth. Engineers files can also be used with a filehandle to make its use more ergonomic.


Thread Files


Thread files or also known as thread restoring files are a length of a metal handheld tool with teeth cut into at least one of its sides that is used for shaping or smoothing off a piece of material by cutting away some of it. Thread restoring files are designed so that their teeth fit into screw, nuts or bolts threads in order to clean them out or cut away any blockages due to damage.


Needle Files


A needle file is a small tool that is used for shaping, smoothing and finishing metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, glass, stone or polymer clay. They come in different profiles: Round, Half Round, Barrette, Pillar (Flat), Warding, Knife, Crossing, Square, Oval, Slitting, Crochet and Three Square (Triangle).


File Handles


Ergonomically designed with textured surface providing excellent grip. The majority of file handles are push-fit, meaning the file is just pushed into the hole in the handle. Sometimes they are screw fit files, which mean they have hardened teeth in the hole in the handle that scores a groove in the soft metal file, to give added grip to the user. A handle is made out of either plastic or wood used with the file to prevent injury to the user.
