Product Features

  • American pattern file for non-precision material removal

Product Description

The Nicholson half-round hand file has one flat side with double-cut American pattern teeth and one curved side with single-cut American pattern teeth for use on flat and curved surfaces. It has double-cut American pattern teeth on the flat side for rapid material removal and single-cut teeth on the round side for finishing, sharpening, and deburring. 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.

Great file! I bought this for my use in a pipe welding class to prep 12" pipe. After cutting the ends of the pipe to 37 1/2 degree's I needed this file to file the ends of the bevel to a 3/32. This file really takes off the metal fast compared to the single cut files that the college was supplying. The double cut file saves me alot of prep time so I can spend more time welding pipe. 16" makes it great when I am working with 12" diameter pipe.

I like to keep the 4" half round file handy to deburr metal parts that I have cut or machined. The 4" length file is just right for small parts or smaller features that are not quite the easiest to deburr with a deburring tool or scraper. It works well, but the newer files are not quite as nicely produced as the older US files. I received a made in Brazil file and it works well, but the fit and finish is a bit rough. The tang is a bit off center, there are a few out of place cut marks from when they made the file teeth, etc. That said, it works just fine, and so far it is holding up just fine, it hasn't dulled noticeable faster.

it's a file that is almost a rasp. I guess that's what I'd call it. Good for woodwork, do some shaping with this and then clean up with something finer. It removes wood evenly and doesn't seem to get clogged up.

Just the size I need. As a professional handyman I spend a lot of time working on door hardware, this is just the right size and cut for working on strike plates. It's a handy size to keep in my toolbag paired with Nicholson Flat Hand File (Boxed), American Pattern, Double Cut, Rectangular both mounted to their own handles Nicholson Type B Wooden File Handle, Size 3, 4-1/8" Length (Pack of 1).

I might have given it 5 stars if it was made in the USA instead of Brazil.

This Nickolson fine file is in the excellent tradition of Nickolson tools. Sharp to the tip and fits snugly into a conventional wood handle (an additional purchase item). You may buy with confidence that it will perform as intended and produce a fine finish on metal components.
