File Cleaner

A File Cleaner is essential when using metal files. Think of the File Cleaner as a toothbrush for your Files. When you file metal, you create filings that build up and clog a files teeth. If you don't clean the teeth with a steel bristled brush they will eventually stop cutting and become ineffective. To ensure your file lasts through many jewelry projects, keep yours clean and in top cutting shape with a File Cleaner from Cool Tools.
