Wow What to Say? – Metal Filer 10-Piece (L614310) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
These are fantastic little files that have quite a grit corse feel, i estimate that the ones i received were 120 grit, from feel, in estimation with sandpaper, and they are great for hobbyists, modelers, or people who just need that right size files to fix up the odd job.
Ive used these on plastic and they work a treat, and they work well on soft metals,
Cons:
None that i can think of for the price.
Other:
Would be nice if DX sold something as a handle for something like this, where you can screw the file into a handle and give it a bit more dexterity with the hand motion.
But i found a solution outside of DX which is using a Lino Cutter handle which you can buy from your local art store for a few dollars, and it holds it nice and secure.
Bottomline:
EXCELLENT
