Pre-polish and precisely finish the intricate details of your most delicate pieces. This set of G10 escapement buffing files from Glardon Vallorbe® has a composite coating of synthetic diamond particles and is ideal for smoothing tiny details and accessing hard-to-reach areas. The hard coating makes these buff files great for use on a variety of materials—including all precious metals, titanium, steel and even enamel—and delivers a long service life. This set includes six commonly used file shapes in a plastic carrying case to help keep your bench organized.
Escapement files are narrower and thinner than standard needle files with shorter cutting surfaces and longer, square handles. Effective on gold, silver, platinum, titanium, steel and other metals, escapement files are best suited for work that requires little metal removal.
The first choice for most jewelers, Glardon Vallorbe® files are manufactured to the highest production standards, made in Switzerland of the finest heat-tempered chrome-alloy steel, hardened to 65HRC. The files are precision-ground to cut quickly and accurately and to last longer than just about any other file on the market.
• Buffing files require occasional cleaning during use. We recommend using benzine, alcohol or a short dip in an ultrasonic cleaner.
