Product Description

The Nicholson flat hand file for aluminum has a rectangular shape with double-cut American pattern Type A teeth on both sides for smoothing and shaping straight surfaces, and provides good chip clearance for a smooth finish when filing aluminum and aluminum alloys. The file tapers slightly toward the point in width to ease access into slots. It has double-cut American pattern teeth on each side for rapid material removal. The tang can be used with an optional handle for secure gripping (sold separately).

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 have 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, more precise finish than equivalent American pattern files.

Nicholson manufactures hand tools and power tool accessories. The company is headquartered in Sparks, MD.

I am building a light aircraft and do a lot of aluminum shaping by hand. Having used a lot of standard files I was skeptical, but these files absolutely do not pin up (or clog), regardless of how much aluminum you remove. They look too aggressive and can remove a lot of material if required, but used the right way, they leave a smooth finish that requires little additional finishing. This is the largest of 3 that I bought, and is the one I use the most. A word of advice, don't throw files in a drawer, hang them up or rack them so that they don't bash against each other, or they will quickly lose their edges.

I got the 10" version, it's perfect for trimming the burs off sawed angle aluminum. It's really sharp and has the right spacing for not getting hung up when you put some pressure on your cut. one full stroke takes probably .5 mm off of a corner, and the aluminum doesn't gum up in the teeth. The price is right, just mark it or segregate it so you or someone else doesn't try to use it on steel.

"The best for my jobs", can't use metal files as a store owner recently told me. The Nicholson line is a favorable line that I use and Amozon had a very competive price, with stock.
