Mill File

Mill files are single cut on the sides and edges, and taper towards the point in width. Excellent for a wide range of wood-shaping applications.

Square File

Created for slots, key ways, square holes or general surface filing. Square Files are double cut and taper toward the point in width and thickness, and feature the exclusive “wavy tooth” design.

Round File

Intended for enlarging and rounding out circular openings or concave surfaces. Round Files are double cut and taper toward the point in width and thickness. 


Gullet Special Files are single cut and parallel in width and thickness. Designed for shaping flat or round surfaces and cleaning up edges, you can also use the half-round on wide band saw blades to “dress out” and maintain smooth round gullets and eliminate crack-causing case hardening.

Flat File

Excellent for “hogging” or rapid stock removal. Flat Files are double cut on both sides, single cut on the edges, and taper toward the point in width. Simonds Flat Files feature the exclusive “wavy tooth” design.

Taper Saw

Designed for filing all types of saws with 60° angle teeth. Taper saw files are triangular in shape, have cut edges, and taper toward the point in width and thickness.
