A superior quality of metalworking file for every day tasks in the home workshop or for professional metalworking.
We have been looking for a number of months to find a reliable manufacturer of metalworking files to use in our production of portable track. We have been putting a set of Vallorbe files through their paces filing our mild steel day in day out. Even after weeks of continued heavy use the files remain sharp with a very good cutting face.
Vallorbe are world leaders in metal working files and have a wide range for numerous sectors, including industry, forestry, jewellery, watchmaking, blacksmithing and luthiery. The files we have selected are well suited for Model Engineering and general Machinist tasks but we can source a wide variety of files for our customers from Vallorbe’s extensive catalogue. If you are looking for a specific file for a metalworking application, please do contact us to find out how we can help.
The soft grip handle helps avoid calluses and blisters on the hands when working for extended periods. The handles are not moulded to the file, so can be removed and swapped onto fresh files or changed to wooden handles at your discretion.
We can source most of the range of engineer’s files from Vallorbe, so take a look at their full catalogue here for more info https://www.vallorbe.com/file.cfm?cmsfile=&contentid=5304
