Hand files and sets are used to smooth and shape wood and metal. A round file is a tapered tool that can enlarge round holes and smooth intricate edging, especially in fine furniture work. For sheer versatility, a half-round file can do the job of two files. With its rounded and flat edges, this file can smooth both concave and flat wood or metal surfaces. A flat file has the durability to smooth machinery parts to help your machines perform at peak condition. Hand files and sets include these basic file types as well as others to suit your latest work material challenge.
