  • Filing:
Apply on your files to stop the teeth from 'pinning' in the first place. Take a piece of our French chalk rub this into the file face before use. This has the effect of filling in the tooth pockets with chalk whilst still allowing the tooth to cut. Because the pocket is now full of chalk means that it can't fill up with metals which bounces out. You will need to keep doing this of course every few strokes or so keeps your files feeling new and sharp.
