Simonds Extra Slim Taper Saw Hand File, American Pattern, Triangular, Black Oxide Coating, 6" Length (Pack of 1)

Model: 78549600   |    Mpn: 78549600   |    Ean: 0726606213933   |    PartNumber: 78549600   |   Asin: B00018AEZC

The Simonds taper saw hand file is 6" long, has a black oxide coating, and has a extra-slim triangular shape with single-cut American pattern teeth for filing handsaws with 60-degree angle teeth. The file tapers slightly toward the point to ease access between small saw teeth. It has single-cut American pattern teeth on all sides for finishing, sharpening, and deburring. The file edges are set and cut for filing gullets between saw teeth. The file's black oxide coating helps provide greater resistance to loading and rust than uncoated files. The tang can be used with an optional handle for secure gripping (sold separately).

Hand files are used to remove material and smooth and shape workpieces. They have forward-facing cutting teeth and cut when pushed over either a stationary or rotating workpiece. Single-cut teeth are single rows cut diagonally across the width of the file. Double-cut teeth have two sets of rows cut in opposite directions. American pattern files have three coarseness grades. Coarse, also known as bastard cut, is suitable for efficient, heavy material removal where finish is not a concern. Medium, also known as second cut, offers average material removal and finish quality. Fine, also known as smooth cut, provides the smoothest finish. Swiss pattern files have eight coarseness grades, from 00 (coarse), 0 (medium), and 1 to 6 (fine to finest), offering a smoother finish than equivalent American pattern files. For Swiss pattern files the length of the tool is the length of the blade, not counting the tang, which is the pointed end fitted for a handle; for American pattern files the length of the tool is its entire length, including the tang.

Simonds International manufactures tools for cutting and finishing. The company, founded in 1832, is headquartered in Fitchburg, MA.

Features

  • Triangular shape with extra-slim tapered body for filing handsaws with 60-degree angle teeth
  • American pattern file for non-precision material removal
  • Single-cut teeth for finishing, sharpening, and deburring
  • Black oxide coating helps provide greater resistance to loading and rust than uncoated files

Army Painter The Miniature and Model Files - 3-Piece Diamond File Set of Round File, Flat File and Triangular Metal File - Needle File Set for Metal, Resin, and Plastic Miniatures.

Model: ARM05003   |    Mpn: ARM05003   |    Ean: 5060030662581   |    PartNumber: ARM05003   |   Asin: B001AE7RRO

Because scouting for the right mini tools can take a good deal of time and money, The Army Painter brings together the most commonly used file shapes round, flat and triangular in this special Miniature and Model Files Set.

MINIATURES PREPPING IN LESS TIME

No paint job can cover up an uneven finish. While you can opt for sanding sticks to prepare your armies of miniatures before washing and priming them for painting, but they take time and may leave rough surfaces.

Hobby knives or traditional steel files may remove mold lines from metal miniatures, but may easily damage plastic or resin minis that are cast with much more delicate materials.

Each Army Painter file is specialized with a very fine, even grit for the smoothest finish you can gloriously run your hands on. They also work perfectly on metal, resin, and plastic, so you don't have to worry about damaging something you're working carefully on.

MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

Tried and tested in the gaming community for years, these Army Painter mini tools are arguably the best value needle files on the market today comparable to the more expensive jeweler files.

Add to cart now and get your miniatures ready for painting and gaming!

  • FINE, EVEN DIAMOND GRIT FOR SMOOTH FINISH - Remove flash and mold lines from miniatures and really get into stubborn places without rubbing any details away. These hobby files modeling tools can be used on minis made from metal, resin and plastic
  • DURABLE STEEL CONSTRUCTION; STAND FREQUENT USE - Unlike other miniature files tools that are flimsy and could break anytime, Army Painter tough stainless steel material makes these miniature files hold up well and for a long time
  • FILE DOWN ROUGH SPOTS WITHOUT LOSING DETAILS - Hobby knives may effectively remove mold lines on metal but may easily carve a chunk out on plastic miniature. These stainless steel diamond files are designed to smooth molding imperfections on mini figures
  • RED SOFT GRIP HANDLES FOR COMFORTABLE FILING - Handle detail work more enjoyable with the comfortable and soft grip handles. Ergonomically designed, they allow better control, whether you're hacking off mold lines or taking off bulk of excess material

Nicholson 5 Piece General Purpose Hand File Set

Model: 22040NN   |    Mpn: 22040NN   |    Ean: 0037103219206   |    PartNumber: 22040NN   |   Asin: B000TDGHVY

The Nicholson 22040N 5-piece American pattern hand file set includes an assortment of file profiles, cuts, and lengths for shaping, sharpening, and removing material. The set includes a 6"/150 mm slim taper, 8"/200 mm mill smooth, 8"/200 mm mill bastard, 10"/250 mm mill bastard, and 10"/250 mm half-round bastard file. The bastard files enable heavy material removal when finish is not a concern, and the smooth files have fine teeth that create a smooth finish. The files have single-cut faces for use with light pressure, except for the half-round file which has double-cut round and flat sides. The files are made from high-carbon steel for high strength and durability. The set comes in a red plastic pouch with each compartment labeled with the file length, shape, and coarseness.

Assortment Contents Slim taper file
Length: 6"/150 mm Cross-section shape: Triangle Cut: Single cut on all faces Application: For deepening curved spaces between handsaw teeth that are at a 60-degree angle and measure 7 or 8 teeth per inch Mill files (3)
Lengths: (2) 8"/200 mm and (1) 10"/250 mm Cross-section shape: Tapered rectangle Cut: Single cut on faces and edges Coarseness: Bastard cut, except one 8"/200 mm is smooth cut Application: For sharpening mill or circular saws, and creating fine finishes on metals Half-round file
Length: 10"/250 mm Cross-section shape: Half circle Cut: Double cut on round and flat side Coarseness: Bastard cut Application: For removing material from both curved and flat surfaces
Files are toothed tools that offer a controlled way to remove material from intricate shapes. The shape of the object being filed establishes which file shape and length should be used. For example, a round file is recommended when filing concave surfaces or enlarging holes. File length measures the cutting face and does not include the handle or tang. The cut and coarseness of the file determines how much material will be removed with each stroke. A single-cut file has parallel rows of teeth covering its face, removing small amounts of material with light pressure to create a fine finish. A double-cut file has similar teeth as a single-cut file but is overlaid with a second set of parallel teeth facing the opposite direction. This second set of teeth increases the amount of material removed with each pass, generates a rougher finish, and requires heavier pressure than a single-cut file. A rasp-cut file has individually formed teeth that are raised above the tool's surface for removing large amounts of material from wood, aluminum, lead, and other soft materials. A curved-cut file has teeth arranged in parallel semicircles across the face of the file and is most commonly used for auto body projects. Most files are classified as American pattern or Swiss pattern, and each has their own coarseness rating system. American pattern files are rated bastard (coarse) cut, second (semi-smooth) cut, and smooth cut. Swiss pattern files are recommended for precision applications and have a larger rating scale from coarse (00) to extra smooth (6).

Nicholson manufactures hand tools and power tool accessories. The company is headquartered in Sparks, MD.
