Small parallel files for making hinge seats


#1

Just a quick heads up for those who are looking for this elusive
creature. Progress Tools (progresstools.com) has them in a variety
of sizes. They are called something like " joint edge file". For
some reason they are not in the online catalog, or at least I
couldn’t find them, but they are available. Progress also caries a
really GREAT selection of fancy shaped mandrel for bezels, etc…

Hope this is of use to others.

These small files are available from Frei and Borel in Oakland, and
they come in two styles: ‘Joint Edge’ files are parallel flat files
(like an equaling file) with round edges, item # 131.537 to 131.546.
‘Crochet’ files are flat files with round edges, which taper to a
point (like a barrette file) item # 131.047 to 131.054. Each style
is available in different lengths and cuts (coarse to fine).
