Rapid, free-cutting files designed for lathe filing on wood or soft metals
Rectangular shape is reliably strong and has a wide surface for faster filing
Single-cut pattern is perfect for smoothing edges or precision work
Safe edges designed to protect lathe and file when working close to the edges of a work piece
Made on flat file blanks with a bastard-cut style that is coarser to the touch
Cuts faster than regular mill files and leaves a smoother finish
The Crescent Nicholson single-cut, bastard-cut angled lathe files are ideal for filing down significant amounts of wood or soft metals from a lathe-turned object. The bastard-cut coarseness design removes material aggressively, cutting faster than a regular mill file, but leaves a smoother finish because of the single-cut pattern. The rectangular shape and large size of these files are perfect for large-scale jobs where precision is key.
