Sturdy files for cleaning and squaring nut mounting surfaces.
Two cutting edges: Each file has a medium and fine cutting surfaces. They file only the bottom of the slot, leaving the side walls unscarred.
Quality steel tool with rubber-coated handle.
Each file is 7-3/8" (187mm) long, with 4" (101mm) cutting surface.
To keep the file from binding in the slot, we have designed these files to be slightly narrower than the nut size specified. An undersized file also helps to prevent widening the slot width—ensuring a snug fit for your nut.
