Sometimes called pneumatic filers or reciprocating filers, air-powered filers have an abrasive file that moves back-and-forth against a workpiece to remove excess blunt material or machining marks from a variety of surfaces, including plastic, metal, die casts, and wood. These tools require a source of compressed air to operate.
For General Purpose
These general purpose air-powered filers are typically lighter than heavy duty air filers, making them easier to handle. They are well suited for a variety of surface preparation tasks on metal surfaces, including grinding, deburring, and removing machining marks.
For Heavy Duty Use
Heavy duty air-powered filers remove material more quickly than general-use air filers. They are a good choice for applications such as removing coatings, grinding, deburring, and filing.
