Flexible Milled Tooth

Also known as milled-tooth and auto-body files, these rectangular files have gaps between the teeth where chips from soft materials fall out of the sides rather than buildup on the file. The curved teeth smooth the material as the file moves across the workpiece, which helps prevents scratching. An area on either side of the handle allows for two-hand controlled filing.
