Side Float File - 100mm Extreme Fine Cut

Rutlands    Part No. JP2011
The side float file was originally designed for working wooden planes. Its shape makes it perfect for working plane beds and fine tuning mouths. In general woodwork, this file can be used for flattening, working into tight corners and smoothing irregularly shaped objects. As with all of the other files in this range, this single sided side float file has a series of ultra sharp ridges, like blades, rather than teeth.

These ridges plane the wood rather than tear it leaving a perfectly smooth finish. This file has a handle with a rubberised grip. Made in Japan. These carving files are the best we have ever tried and from the outset proved themselves worthy of the excellent reputation they hold worldwide. Requiring very little pressure from the user, these files cut very quickly and leave a clean, smooth surface in their wake.

Look closely at the surface of one of these files and the reason for this soon becomes apparent. Each blade is made up of a series of chemically etched ridges rather than individual teeth. Grooves are cut at regular intervals along each ridge to form a diagonal pattern that runs the length of the blade. This combination of ridges and grooves makes the surface of the file act like it is made up of hundreds of tiny blades that plane the surface of the wood instead of scratch it away.

The resultant finish is astounding.

    You don''t often see shaped files. This is perfect for getting into the tight corners that the rectangular files won''t fit into and leaves a perfect finish.

    What a Godsend! I have a number of wooden planes - mainly Japanese - and this is an essential for fine tuning. Cuts very well and is just the right shape for the planes'' mouths.

    Quality product, leaves a smooth finish where others tear up the timber. Will certainly buy more from this range
