Default special file

Well, i new that they were made, but have never seen one. A file that does knot cut on the sides, only on the faces.

Went to the local industrial tool supply store and asked for 2, 12" bastard cut and mill cut, single cut files

what i got was one 10" "lathe" file, appears to be extra thick, single cut and about mill in coarseness.

I'm happy. I always have trouble filing into corners without nicking the opposite side - now the tool will work for me and not against me

cost - just four bucks - made in spain. the other files that i have that were made in spain have served me well.

Default Re: special file

more files - most "half rounds" two square, one small square with a "safe" side. The big square with a bastard cut fits great and i make a side safe with a strip of SS, then i come back with the small square with the safe side and remove the lip that the ss shim leaves.

Great having the variety of sizes and cuts, some bastard, some second cut and a few smooth cuts.

They are workin great on forming my intake manifold flanges and the cone on the inside of the flange.

workin aluminum is rather fun
