Checkering File - Cut 2
These precision files are produced with the finest heat tempered chrome alloy steel to the highest standards of accuracy, performance, and service life..
Checkering Files have a profile similar to hand files, with four parallel sides and a slightly tapered thickness. The top and bottom surfaces are double cut and the sides are uncut, or "safe". Unlike standard double cut files, checkering files have teeth that are in line with each other instead of staggered. Because of the arrangement of teeth, checkering files (sometimes referred to as texturing or florentine files) create grooves or serrations in the material being filed. They are often used to create decorative edges on bezels, broad textured surfaces, and fast material removal.
Dimensions: 1/2" wide x 11/64" thick x 6" cut length
