Also known as rat tail files, these have a round body that is suitable for removing material from holes, curved edges, and other round surfaces. The file has teeth around the body for full surface contact when filing and a tapered end for fitting into tight spaces.
The round body of these files fits between the teeth on chain saws to sharpen and clean them. Match the diameter of the file to the gauge of your chain saw.

General Purpose Single Cut
For general purpose filing and finishing applications, these round files have parallel diagonal rows of teeth that remove material with light pressure. They are better for finishing and light duty applications than aggressive double-cut files.
Aggressive Double Cut
Quickly remove material from surfaces with these aggressive double-cut round files. Teeth are diamond-shaped and have double the cutting edges compared to a single-cut pattern, which means they cut more quickly. They also require more pressure than single-cut files during use.
Precision Swiss Pattern
Narrower than other round files and with precision-cut teeth along the full body, these precision Swiss-pattern files provide a very fine, smooth finish. They are used for intricate and detailed applications.
