Files are abrasive tools used on wood, metal and other hard materials for smoothing surfaces or enlarging and finishing openings. They are made out of hardened steel. They may be cut (toothed) on two or more sides or have a smooth side. Cuts can be single (with rows of cuts going in one direction) or double-cut (with rows of cuts crisscrossing in two directions)—the smaller and closer the cuts, the finer the file. Files come in a range of shapes and sizes. They have different cross-sections (square, rectangular, triangular, round or arc-shaped) and may be straight or tapered. We offer a range of quality files for all kinds of jobs, big and small. Our range comprises Millsaw, Flat, Needle, Saw chainsaw, Round, Square and Wood Horse Rasps Files.
Flat Files are flat in shape, have a rectangular cross-section, and may have a single or double cut. Millsaw is straight files with a rectangular cross-section. They are used primarily to sharpen circular saws and mill saws. Square Files have a square cross-section and are cut on all four sides. They are used for various tasks, including filing slots or keyways with a square or rectangular cross-section.
