Aluminum Half Round Files are designed with a special tooth construction for
filing both flat and curved surfaces in aluminum and other soft metals. They
are double cut and tapered in width and thickness.
Flat Hand Files are designed for safe filing of internal corners and where metal
must be removed rapidly. One edge is uncut or "safe" for filing one
surface without damaging an adjoining one. They are double cut on both sides
and one edge, and parallel in width. Similar to Flat Taper Files but taper in
thickness and have one safe edge.
Square Files are designed for filing slots, key ways, grooves, square holes and
edges, and for filing flat surfaces where a heavier section is preferred. They
are double cut on all four sides and taper slightly to a point.
Three Square Files are designed for filing internal angles above 60°, corners,
grooves, notches, and for filing HSS taps and cutters after machining. They are
double cut on all three sides and taper slightly to point. NOTE: This file has
sharp corners and is not recommended for filing saws.
Flat Taper Files are designed for use where metal must be removed rapidly and
a smooth finish is not required. They are double cut on both sides with single
cut edges and tapered in width and thickness. Similar to Mill Files but thicker
in cross section and double cut.
Warding Files are designed for filing in narrow spaces where other files will
not fit. They are used by locksmiths to repair or file ward notches in keys.
This file is also useful for re-sharpening small drills. They are double cut
on sides and single cut on edges.
Long Angle Lathe Files are designed for filing work that is rotating in a lathe
and for bench filing of aluminum and copper alloys. The long bastard cut tooth
is self clearing when used at right angles to work. It cuts clean and does not
drag or tear. Both edges are safe (uncut) to protect shoulders of work which
are not to be filed. This file tapers slightly in width toward the point.
Half Round Pipe Line Files are designed for filing weld beads and scale off pipe
line. The narrow, half round design gives more contact on edge for cleaning welds.
They are double cut and tapered in width and thickness.
Mill Saw Files are designed as multi-purpose files for sharpening saws, various
cutting edge tools, draw filing, lathe work, and finishing work on hard materials.
They are single cut on sides and edges, width is tapered slightly.
Taper Saw Files are designed for sharpening all styles of saws with 60° angle
teeth. They are single cut on edges and flat sides. Flat sides are equal and
taper towards point. NOTE: The side (size) of the file used should always be
a little more than twice as wide as the side of the saw teeth.
Double End Saw Files are designed for general saw sharpening. They are triangular
in shape and are equivalent to a slim taper saw file. They are supplied second cut with no tang and are tapered from center to each end.
Farmer's Own Files are designed for sharpening cutting edge tools, e.g., knives,
hows, mower machine blades, etc. This file is also popular for working formica.
They are single cut on one side and double cut on the other side. Edges are not
cut. Self handled with 3/8" diameter hole for hanging up file.
Needle files are specially designed for jewelers, watchmakers,
die makers, etc. The appropriate cut number is marked on the round
handle. To order specify order no. and cut no.
Set contains 1 each:
Barrette, Crossing, Equalling, Flat, Half Round, Joint, Knife,
Marking, Round, Slitting, Square, and Three Square needle files.
Precision Files are designed for fine finish
work and are used by tool and die makers, instrument makers, model
makers, and watchmakers. They are made to closer tolerances than
American Pattern files and are narrower in width and thickness.
The points of the tapered files are smaller for fine detail work.
Die Sinkers' Rifflers are specially designed for die sinkers for
getting into crevices, corners, and contours of dies and molds.
They are also used by jewelers and instrument manufacturers. Rifflers
have a cutting surface on each with a safe (uncut) middle section
for handling and are available in many different cross-sectional
shapes. See Below.
Silversmiths' Rifflers are specially designed for making glass
molding dies. They are longer than Die Sinkers' Rifflers and
have wider cutting ends with a safe (uncut) middle section for
handling. Many different cross-sectional shapes are available.
Carbide Grit Edged Hand Files are used for filing ceramics, glass, tile, fiberglass,
and nonmetallic materials. Grit approaches diamond in hardness and wear resistance.
All files have an easy-grip plastic handle.
Flat (with Tang) Curved Tooth Files are designed for smooth, rapid work on all
materials from the softest aluminum to the hardest (annealed) steel without any
clogging of the teeth. The undercut sharp edges enable the file to self clean
and to remove material in a spiral form similar to lathe turnings. It is considered
to be the most efficient file ever designed for auto body repair and sheet metal
Flat Flexible (Blade) Curved Tooth Files are designed for smooth, scratch-free
work on all types of auto body and sheet metal work and where filing has to be
done in the middle of large surfaces. Flexible blades have teeth on both sides
and can be adjusted to file outward (convex) and inward (concave) or flat.
Combination Internal/External Thread Restoring Files are designed
to restore damaged external and internal threads of any diameter
with one tool. They can be used on right or left hand threads or
even be used as a thread gauge. Each file restores eight of the
most popular sizes.
External Thread Restoring Files are designed to rusted and damaged external threads of any diameter bolt or pipe with one tool. They can be used on right or left hand threads or even be used as a thread gauge. Files are precision cut and will not skip or jump out of fine pitches. Thread sizes are marked on each file. Each file comes with a plastic handle except ETRF-P4L.
One pair each .75, 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00, 2.50, 3.00mm pitch dies.
Individual fractional die pairs from 8 to
32TPI and individual metric die pairs from .75 to 3.00mm pitch
can be ordered separately. Specify TPI when ordering.
Internal Rethreading Tool Sets are available with either single handles or two handles. The two handle set can be used to clean and rethread all
internal threads from 3/4" to 6" ID capacity and the single handle works with any size internal thread over 3/4" ID.
Both tools will rethread right hand, left hand, straight and taper threads. Two handle style automatically lines up with threads and can be locked into place.
The rethreaded fit is like new with no undercut. Dies are interchangeable and can be replaced when worn. These are also known as Hand Chasers.
