This pocket set of diamond needle files offer five 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 120/140-mesh file of each of the following shapes: flat, round, half-round, 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.
