Files in Australia

Hand files are an essential hand tool for smoothing a range of materials including metals, woods and plastics. All our files are made from high carbon steel and heat treated so they stay sharper for longer. Used as engineering workshop tools, fabrication units and by a host of professional trades people including carpenters, engineers, mechanics etc. they come in a variety of shapes and abrasive coarseness. The coarseness of files is graded according to the roughness of cut. Some are attached with a safe edge, where the file doesn’t have teeth on one edge, useful when used on grooves or rebates.
