Diamond Files

Diamond Files are manufactured by electroplating diamond on to steel blanks using nickel. The smaller the particles, the finer the grit of the file. This is why diamond files are referred to in grits rather like sandpaper. The higher the number, the smaller the grit and the finer the finish. 

Diamond Files cut on the pull stroke as well as the push stroke when you're working in small intricate areas the diamond file will work on the pull stroke just as effectively as it does on the push stroke. So this may make it slightly easier in confined spaces. It also means in theory that it will cut twice as fast as a toothed file of the same grit because it's cutting on the pull as well as on the push stroke.

Another huge advantage is the fact that they also work sideways and with a twisting motion.

Diamond files have a unique property in that they will work in any direction, unlike traditional steel files have teeth rather like a saw blade. The smaller the teeth, the finer the cut of the file, but all these teeth are lined up in the same direction. So this means that with a traditional file it will only cut in one direction like a saw. Even when you have a round or half round file, they still only cut in a forward direction. They don't work sideways or in a circular motion, for example.

Diamond Files cut in all directions, produce a better finish. The distribution of diamond particles enables the diamond needle file to not only cut in all directions but also produce a much better finish. Therefore diamond needle files can offer a fantastic abrasive for a variety of applications. Due to the hardness of diamond, diamond files can be used on a variety of materials that other abrasives will not have an impact upon.

Because diamond files come in various shapes like flat, round, square, etc. They are ideal for use in maintaining aluminum extrusion dies, sharpening carbide cutting tools, working on industrial ceramic components, enlarging and cleaning holes in various hard to work on materials like tungsten carbides and industrial ceramics.
