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 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. This hand file features second cut coarseness, allowing for material to be filed quickly whilst producing a fairly smooth surface.

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.

Does this include a handle?

This flat file does not include a handle, however, we offer a range of suitable RS PRO file handles such as RS stock no. 1611502.
