Product Features

  • Rectangular shape for smoothing and shaping straight surfaces

  • American pattern file for non-precision material removal
  • Double-cut, variable-pitch teeth on both sides for rapid removal of material
  • Tang for use with an optional handle (sold separately)

Product Description

The Simonds flat hand file has a rectangular shape with double-cut, variable-pitch American pattern teeth on both sides for smoothing and shaping straight surfaces. 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, and the teeth are variably pitched to help reduce chattering and prolong tool life. The file has single-cut teeth on the edges 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 are 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 finish than equivalent American pattern files. For Swiss pattern files the length of the tool is the length of the blade, not counting the tang, which is the pointed end fitted for a handle; for American pattern files the length of the tool is its entire length, including the tang.

Simonds International manufactures tools for cutting and finishing. The company, founded in 1832, is headquartered in Fitchburg, MA.

Made in China, very inconsistent teeth, lousy quality. Look elsewhere if you want a good file, because this ain't it.

I ordered this and a different Simonds file, and they both have obvious defects. Of the two Simonds I ordered this one has the least problems. The main face of the file is fine, but there are metal burrs on the edges creating little saw teeth. It looks like Simonds cut the edge of the file first and then the face, but the last step left burrs on the edge. Luckily, I am only going to use the face of the file and I might grind the edge of the file smooth so I wont damage inside corners when filing. If anyone wonders, this file is made in China.

This is the other Simonds file I ordered and it has even more defects. It has the same edge defects and the file face is mutilated and bent at the tip of the file. That file is made in Honduras. Read my review there.
