What are Files, Sticks and Stones Used for?

After machining or casting, many parts and pieces have rough edges, protuberances, jagged lines, burrs, and other coarse, spiky, and unwanted lines and sections sticking out that need to be filed down and removed. This is where file sets, sharpening stones and sticks come into play.

File sets like metal files and steel files are used for processes like deburring, chamfering, and radiusing. They're the ideal tools to use to get rid of burrs and rough edges in small, delicate, or hard-to-reach areas of metal pieces and other materials, like woods and plastics.

Choosing Files, Sticks, and Stones

It's vital to choose the appropriate file set or sharpening stone to suit your needs and match the intended application. The right shape and size needs to be chosen to match with the contours and shapes of the items and surfaces that need to be stoned or filed.

Sharp-angle file sets are ideal for getting into tight corners and narrow spaces, for examples, while longer sticks and stones are useful for deburring long sections of a surface.
