Metalworking Files

What are metalworking files?

Metalworking files are used to remove, shape and deburr metal components and fabrications. They are an essential part of any engineer or metal worker's toolbox.

How do metalworking files work?

They're a bit like a solid, more aggressive form of sandpaper. The abrasive surface of the file is applied to the surface that requires filing. As the file is moved, the material is cut away and so fabrications and components can be shaped, finished or smoothed. 

What are the benefits of using metalworking files?

Filing is, in many cases, an essential part of the metalworking process. Pieces must be shaped and finished; removing the sharp edges caused by cutting metal into shape can help prevent injuries as well as damage to other parts.
