Categories - Filing

In hardware and metalworking, a file is a tool made of hardened steel in the shape of a bar or rod with numerous small cutting edges raised on its longitudinal sides; it is used to smooth or mould items, particularly metal. The file's cutting or abrading action is caused by rubbing it on the workpiece, usually by hand. The cross-sectional shape of the file, the shape of the cutting edges, and the coarseness of the cut are all used to classify it.
