The Nicholson mill hand file with ergonomic handle is 12" long, has a rectangular shape, and has single-cut coarse (also called bastard) American pattern teeth on the sides and edges for sharpening mill or circular saws and draw filing with a rough finish. The file tapers slightly toward the point to ease access into grooves. The file has single-cut American pattern teeth for sharpening and deburring, and square edges for filing sharp corners. An attached rubber-coated handle provides an ergonomic grip.
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.
Top Customer Reviews
Downgraded to two stars mostly for shipping/retailer handling. The damage (substantial dings in the file teeth down to the file blank) from handling at the retailer is too much to accept. I will be returning the file for a new one. Hopefully the retailer will get their act together this time or else they simply lose the sale and off to Tool King I go.
Amazon was prompt in the return of the damaged file and received the new file today. Again, packed like crap - oh well, not nearly as damaged as the last one and the few small dings are in places that won't see any work. I'll keep this file but don't think I'll be ordering files from Amazon or their retailers again; one needs to touch and examine their tools before purchasing.
-Works well quickly
-Not made in USA anymore?(need confirmation)
Summary: I bought this file to work on axes, hatchets, and mower blades quickly and safely. My six inch file was getting my fingers a little too close for comfort even with good gloves. This product took off consistent amounts of metal from both sides of the file. I would recommend this file for anyone working on larger hand tools or needing to resurface large areas of metal.
