I bought a set of needle files when I was 14 years old (I'm 48 now) and the last few have finally gone south. Quality these days is not what it used to be so I was very reluctant to purchase another set site-unseen, but I went and ahead and gave it a shot. Man am I ever glad...!

These files are every bit as hard and well made as the ones I bought all those years ago and I fully expect they'll last just as long. I think everyone should own a good set of needle files. They come in handy for so many things and because of these size you can do highly precise filing, burr removal and because they're so hard you can actually use them for carving soft rock like soap-stone.

Oh, and to HappyFuzzyBunny - the oily substance is just that - oil. It's traditional to oil tempered carbon steel files (and any edged tools not made of stainless steel) as it keeps them from rusting and it also helps keep the teeth free of hard-stuck-on debris. Buy yourself a can of 3in1 oil and keep these babies oiled. I'm so used to oiling my tools once or twice a year I've come to equate that smell and feel with quality tools that well taken care of.

This is a package you won't regret buying. With shipping mine came out to about .94 cents each. Not bad for a tool that works well and lasts a long long time if not abused.

These work just great for what I need them for, filing a bit of metal off of findings, etc. For the price, they are super!

This set of 12 Needle Files is very good quality and is exactly what I wanted for use in making jewelry. It is surprising how much easier things go when you have the right tool on hand and this set gives me a lot to choose from.

These did need to be wiped off before using to remove the machining oil that lightly coated them.

Highly Recommended!

Pot metal! Brittle pot metal at thar! Cheap enough? Very expensive if you consider the time WASTED ordering it, waiting for delivery, unwrapping it, then breaking one of them the first time you use it. They are cheaply made (poured in a cast), as brittle as a rose petal dipped in liquid nitrogen, and will not stand up to any stress on them. I broke two of them on WOOD! A third was defeated by the sharp edge of a piece of tin! Worthless!
The only thing more worthless is the bother of sending them back or trying to get a refund. Simply not worth the time or effort.

I will use these little needle files for work around my bench in the garage, not for wire work and wrapping, as advertised. Jewelers may not find these the very best quality, but they are more than adequate for any light work filing in the shop for the average guy or gal who needs to perform as little light filing on their projects.

I needed some files for cleaning up plastic/metal models. These are working very well for me. I appreciate having the different files for handling the odd shapes and sizes.

These work well & I like having a ton of file shapes to choose from. Only beef is that they are coated in some kind of oily substance that gets everywhere.

A decent set of files. A little difficult to use as there is no rubber or vinyl grip on the round end so they end up digging into your palm while you use them. All-in-all, worth the money. However, next time I'll opt for something with a grip on it.
