    Metal File Tool Applications

    Tips: What is a file tool?

    A file is a hand tool used to shape a workpiece. There are many fine teeth on the surface of the file, which are used for micro-processing of metal, wood, leather and other surface layers. In other words, the file is used to remove small amount of materials from the surface of workpiece to enable it to reach the required size, shape and roughness degree. It has a wide range of applications, and can be applied to file the outer surface, inner hole, groove and various complicated surfaces of the workpiece.

    Files are generally made of carbon steel by rolling, forging, annealing, grinding, cutting teeth and quenching. The file is made of T12 steel, and the hardness reaches HRC62~64 after surface quenching.

    The file is mainly composed of file body and file handle. The filing surface is the main working surface. There are many teeth on the file surface. When filing, each file tooth is equivalent to a chisel cutting the material. The file pattern refers to pattern of regularly arranged file teeth. The tooth pattern of the file is divided into two types: single-cut and double-cut. Single-cut files have rows of parallel teeth diagonally along the working surface, often used for filing some soft materials such as aluminum, while double-cut files have rows of teeth crossing each other, suitable for filing hard materials.

    Rules for using flat files
    How to extend the service life of flat files?
    A manager responded to this review
    1. It is forbidden to use new files to frustrate hard metals.
    2. It is forbidden to use files to thwart quenching materials.
    3. Forgings and castings with hard skin or sticky sand, they must be grinded on a grinder before they can be filed with a semi-sharp file.
    4. Use one side of the new file first, and then use the other side when the side is blunt.
    5. When filing, always use a wire brush to remove the chips on the teeth.
    6. Files cannot be overlapped or stacked with other tools.
    7. Don't use the file too fast, otherwise it is easy to wear.
    8. The file should avoid water, oil or other dirt.
    9. Fine files are not allowed to file soft metals.
    10. Do not use too much force with the file to avoid breaking.
