I am going to be purchasing some files to use at home rather
than relying on the the sad, tired ones at the Craft Guild where
I take classes (my fifth year–what do you think, should I stick
with this hobby?)
My question posed for round table discussion: if you were to
have only 2 files to use for fabrication and casting cleanup in
sterling silver, which cuts and shapes would you buy? I have a
set of the small files (which I believe are 2s) for those small
spots, but need the large ones for removing more surface.
You can suggest brands, but I’m more interested in shapes and
what they are good for and cutting strength.
