This 6-piece pocket set of needle files features files with shortened shanks that provide more cutting area and better control when filing; they are ideal for accessing fine details. This set ensures you have the file shape you need for all of your jewelry designs, and the hollow barrel of the anodized aluminum handle doubles as a convenient holder for unused files. To use, insert a file into the handle collet for quick, easy file changes. This set includes one each of the following shapes: equalling, round, half-round, barrette, three-square and square.
These files have a Swiss cut #2; Swiss-cut files are graded by the number of teeth, counting teeth perpendicular to the long axis of the file. In all cut styles, the higher the number, the finer its cut.
Needle files feature a miniature profile with a shorter cutting surface (typically about half their length) and round, narrow handles. These small files are ideal for working on fine details and in small areas of the workpiece; they're ideal when access and surface finish take priority over metal removal.
