Flat Files

Flat files are the most commonly used file. They have a multitude of purposes including finishing, shaping, and deburring a wide range of materials. These files can be used on soft metals, hard metals, plastic, cast iron, hard rubber, and hot metal. Double cut files remove material at a fast rate and are useful in shaping. Single cut files can be used to sharpen tool blades and file materials to a smooth finish. The coarseness of the file indicates the spacing of the teeth and the number of teeth per inch; the our different grades for American Pattern Files are coarse cut, bastard cut, second cut, and smooth cut. (In that order from fewest to most teeth per inch) The coarseness of the file also depends on th lenght from point to heel. Shop our online selection or contact us today for a custom quote.
