Product Description

The Simonds 3 piece file set is an assortment of 3 files in a variety of shapes that have handles, a black oxide coating, and coarse American pattern teeth for a range of home or shop uses. The American pattern teeth are for non-precision material removal and have a coarse (also called bastard) coarseness grade for a rough finish. The files' black oxide coating helps provide greater resistance to loading and rust than uncoated files. Each file has a paddle-shaped forged handle for grip. The set comes in a cloth roll pouch for storage.

Hand files are used to remove material and smooth and shape workpieces. They have forward-facing cutting teeth and cut when pushed over either a stationary or rotating workpiece. Single-cut teeth are single rows cut diagonally across the width of the file. Double-cut teeth have two sets of rows cut in opposite directions. American pattern files have three coarseness grades. Coarse, also known as bastard cut, is suitable for efficient, heavy material removal where finish is not a concern. Medium, also known as second cut, offers average material removal and finish quality. Fine, also known as smooth cut, provides the smoothest finish. Swiss pattern files have eight coarseness grades, from 00 (coarse), 0 (medium), and 1 to 6 (fine to finest), offering a smoother finish than equivalent American pattern files. For Swiss pattern files the length of the tool is the length of the blade, not counting the tang, which is the pointed end fitted for a handle; for American pattern files the length of the tool is its entire length, including the tang.

Simonds International manufactures tools for cutting and finishing. The company, founded in 1832, is headquartered in Fitchburg, MA.
