5.0 out of 5 stars Great tool, October 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is my first set of riffler files, so I can't really say that they are better than any other set of files. However, I will say that if you build scale models, get a set of riffler files. As soon as I got this set, I was able to use it to file areas of my current project, that would not have been possible with any of my "straight" files. I would rate the "cut" on these files as medium. It has enough bite to file plastic and resin easily, without leaving gouges in the material. I have not tried it on metal, yet. I may look for a set with a finer cut, but for now, I am very happy with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars bit sizes mislabeled on Amazon listing, September 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
According to the description on Amazon, the sizes are "61-80". I assumed that this meant they were using the "wire number" sizing convention that I am familiar with, that all of my other "micro" drill bits use. However, when I got the bits, the case was labeled, ".30, .35, .40, .45, ... I was confused, at first. But, I am guessing that these are actually milimeters. So, the smallest drill bit was .30mm, which is a little smaller than a #80 drill bit. And the largest one, I think, was a 1.4mm bit. This is considerably larger than a #61 drill bit. When I went back to the Amazon site to check the "technical details", that description was worse. It said that the bits ranged from 61 to 80mm. If I am not mistaken, 80mm is over 3 inches!!!

I still gave this item, 4-stars, partly because of the price. But, mostly because for what I will use them for, I don't pick drill bits based on the "labeled" drill size, I just use whatever is needed. But, for someone who really needs a #75 drill bit, it could be bit aggravating.

Perhaps, I was sent the wrong item. I don't know. But, the cardboard box that the item came in, was labeled "61-80", as well.

Anyway, it would be nice if the description for the item were more accurate.
