Nicholson 5 Piece Hand File Set with Ergonomic Handles, American Pattern, 6" Length, (2)-8" length, (2)-10" length

Model: 22040HNN   |    Mpn: 22040HNN   |    Ean: 0037103243904   |    PartNumber: 22040HNN   |   Asin: B001T49R7S

The Nicholson file set is an assortment of 5 files in a variety of shapes that have ergonomic handles and American pattern teeth for non-precision material removal in a range of home or shop uses. Attached rubber-coated handles provide an ergonomic grip. The set comes in a vinyl pouch for storage.

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.

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

Nicholson 9 Piece Hand File Set with Ergonomic Handles, American Pattern

Model: 22030HNN   |    Mpn: 22030HNN   |    Ean: 0037103243881   |    PartNumber: 22030HNN   |   Asin: B001T4K1O6

The Nicholson 22030HNN 9-piece American pattern hand file set with ergonomic handles includes an assortment of file profiles, cuts, and lengths for shaping, sharpening, and removing material in both home and professional applications. The set includes a 6"/150 mm double extra slim taper, 6"/150 mm slim taper, 8"/200 mm half-round, 8"/200 mm flat, 10"/250 mm half-round, 10"/250 mm flat, 10"/250 mm round, 10"/250 mm mill, and 12"/250 mm mill file. The files have single-cut faces for use with light pressure, except for the half-round and flat files which have double-cut faces. All files, except the taper files, have a bastard cut for heavy material removal when finish is not a concern. The files are made from high-carbon steel for high strength and durability. The ergonomically shaped handles are rubber coated for comfort, grip, and increased control. The handles also have a hanging hole for storage and organization. The set comes in a red roll-up pouch with each compartment labeled with the file length, shape, and coarseness.

Assortment Contents Double extra 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 8 teeth per inch 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 11 teeth per inch Half-round files (2) Lengths: 8"/200 mm and 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 Flat files (2) Lengths: 8"/200 mm and 10"/250 mm Cross-section shape: Rectangle Cut: Double cut on faces, single cut on edges Coarseness: Bastard cut Application: For rapidly removing material from metal Round file Length: 10"/250 mm Cross-section shape: 3/8"-diameter circle Cut: Single cut Coarseness: Bastard cut Application: For filing circular openings and concave surfaces Mill files (2) Length: 10"/250 mm and 12"/300 mm Cross-section shape: Rectangle Cut: Single cut on faces and edges Coarseness: Bastard cut Application: For sharpening mill or circular saws, and creating fine finishes on metals 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 brand is manufactured by Apex Tool Group, maker of hand and power tools. The company, founded in 2010, is headquartered in Sparks, MD.

Nicholson Triangular Slim Taper Hand File With Ergonomic Handle, Single Cut, American Pattern, 6" Length (Pack of 1)

Model: 21729HN   |    Mpn: 21729HN   |    Ean: 0037103217882   |    PartNumber: 21729HN   |   Asin: B001R1UZII

The Nicholson taper hand file is 6" long, includes an ergonomic handle, and has a 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 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. An attached rubber-coated handle provides an ergonomic grip.

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 have 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, more precise finish than equivalent American pattern files.

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

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.
