What is the difference between a flat file and a hand file?

A flat file and hand file are both similar tools used for deburring and removing material quickly and efficiently. The main difference is that flat files tend to have a tapered end with double-cut surfaces and single cut edges.

What is a flat file used for?

A double cut flat file is a hand tool used for quick and efficient deburring and removal of materials such as aluminium and alloy steel. They are also ideal for smoothing materials or in some cases sharped tools.

What is the coarseness of the file?

The coarseness refers to how rough or smooth the file is depending on how close the teeth are. The main categories of coarseness are coarse, bastard, double cut and smooth. The coarseness of the RS PRO general purpose flat file is second-cut, allowing for quick and efficient removal of material.

Is there a handle available?

RS PRO offer a wide variety of handles available that support a range of hand tool and file sizes depending on the application. RS PRO handles feature soft-grip for maintained comfort and control. A selection of the most common sizes are:
6 inch - 1611502
8-12 inch - 1611504

How to maintain your file

In order to ensure your files remain sharp and work to their full potential, it is essential to regularly clean and maintain them. A file card or wire brush are recommended as they can remove debris and build up between the teeth of a file efficiently, without damaging them.
