This set of Friedrich Dick diamond needle files features six commonly used file shapes for fast, sure access to the style you need when you need it. A covered stand holds the double-cut files upright on your bench and helps protect them from humidity and acid fumes. The set includes one 120/140-mesh file of each shape: equalling, round, half-round, barrette, three-square and square.
Diamond files feature cutting surfaces created by embedding particles of industrial diamond into the surface material of the file. The sharp cutting edges and the hardness of the diamond makes these files effective on fragile materials such as stone, ceramic or glass and on very hard metals such as hardened steel or platinum. Diamond files cut quickly and smoothly every stroke, forward or back.
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.
Among the finest jewelers' files in the world, Friedrich Dick files are made of tough chrome/tool steel alloy and precisely machined to yield sharp corners and fine points.
