Needle Files

A needle file is a small tool that is used for shaping, smoothing and finishing metal, wood, plastic, ceramic, glass, stone or polymer clay. They come in different profiles: Round, Half Round, Barrette, Pillar (Flat), Warding, Knife, Crossing, Square, Oval, Slitting, Crochet and Three Square (Triangle).


Needle files consist of cutting ’teeth’. The cut is indicated on a scale ranging from 00 that is the coarsest, to 6 that is the finest. Each cut has a certain number of teeth per square centimetre.


Where are Needle Files used?

How to use a Needle File?


They need to be used in push action and in one direction. It is important that you follow this routine to achieve the desired results. A common mistake is to use then in sawing action, back and forth. This way the teeth of the file will round off and dull quickly, therefore, making the file unusable.


How do you clean Needle Files?


  • Keep them dry

  • Use them in one direction only

  • When the teeth become clogged use a dry toothbrush to clean them off

  • Make sure you do not drop them

  • Do not put excess strain on them
