|Name:||8" Lathe File|
The 8” Lathe File is an 8 inch flat metal file tool that is perfect for finish lathe work, working well with both hard and soft metals. This file has a single cut, meaning the teeth of the file are cut diagonally in one direction across the length of the file. This single cut is helpful in order to achieve a more precise cut when compared to a double cut teeth set as well as making it exceptionally useful for finishing and sharpening. Commonly used in bench filing and lathe work, this lathe file facilitates the smoothing and shaping of flat surfaces. Both of the edges of this lathe file are uncut in order to protect any adjacent surfaces. Compared to regular mill files, these lathe files will cut faster and leave a smoother finish.
* For safety reasons, a file should never be used without a handle. Clean with a wire file cleaner if it gets clogged.
|Suitable For:||Ferrous Metals, Mild Steel, Iron Bar, Plastics, Stainless steel, Hard Rubber, Wood.|
