Small File for Flute or Intricate Work
Oct 16th, 2020 at 3:12am
 
In the past I bought a small file…not a needle file but a small flat file that was very delicate and would be easy to break.It is a go to file for me.I cant figure out where I bought it from……It is perfect for flute work. (I have plenty of needle files) Im just fishing to see if anyone might know what I am talking about.It was $20 for the one file. Not big at all or long…..
The file is almost 1/4" wide 5 1/2 " long ,flat and is thicker on the end you hold as a handle but no real handle, very thin on cut end and is a fine cutting file like for finish work.You could easily break it. It will cut on the sides but it is really thin so mainly used on the flat side.  .I havent broken this one but would like another one. I saw it on a forum or website somewhere but cant remember where Thanks in advance!

I saw it on a forum or website and a guy said it was his go to file but cant remember where I saw it.

Perhaps a file to sharpen auger bits.  One end has safe sides, the other safe edges.
