Product Description

The Nicholson pillar hand file has an extra-narrow rectangular shape with double-cut Swiss pattern teeth on both sides for precision smoothing and shaping of straight surfaces. It has double-cut Swiss pattern teeth on each side for rapid material removal and no teeth on either edge to protect adjacent surfaces. The file's width is smaller than narrow pillar files for more precise work. 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.

Part Number: 40260NOverall Width: [ N/A ]Coarseness Rating: #2Thickness: [ N/A ]Overall Length: 6 Verified Purchase
I am doing a major overhaul of my mid 1990's Ariens snow blower. Ariens used a lot of carriage bolts in pre-punched square holes. After removing the old rusted bolts, some of which broke, the square holes in the steel components of the blower needed to be cleaned out with a file before repainting and reassembly. Most of the holes were either 5/16" or 3/8" square - too small for any of the hand files I had owned.

Pillar files have a finer "Swiss pattern" cut than found on typical hand files. They also have smooth non-cutting edges so that you can file in a corner without enlarging the hole in the wrong dimension. Only the wider, flat sides of pillar files have cutting teeth. This was the perfect file to re-work the square holes. This 'extra-narrow' file is 0.177 inches wide, thickness is 0.10". The Amazon description does not give the actual dimensions.

Just as good as the files in their 12 piece set. Works great and after using it to do several jobs, it looks like brand new. In fact it looks like it'd never been taken out of the package. I like Nicholson files. Not the very top of the line but pretty close. Good stuff.

Don't forget oil and a file card. :)
