I just got mine. It worked well on plywood. I filed quite hard for about 15 minutes. You can feel the file is not quite as rough as when it started, but it has still got a lot of life yet. I'm glad I bought the set.

How long do they last on wood?

I just got my set, and checked them on wood/plastic/styrene/fillers/soft alloys. They arrive in a blue nylon rolling pockets case. Their appearance might look a bit cheep. But I tell you guys, these tools are "HELL" sharp on wood/plastics/styrene/fillers. The slightest touch is needed for a quick accurate file. Pay attention while filing because these files gonna remove layers of material pretty fast. The set contains 12 files in 11 different profiles (the two rounded files are the same): 4-Flats, 2-semi-arced, 1-elliptical, 2-triangular, 1-squared and 2-rounded. They are suitable for almost any filing need: corners, slim slits, sharp/straight/dark angles, rounded surfaces, gentle tips, etc... THESE TOOLS FILE EPOXY/PUTTY/EPOXY PUTTY/CURED SUPERGLUE JUST LIKE HOT KNIFE ON FRESH BUTTER. PROMISING LONG LASTING MODELING SERVICE. I wouldn't suggest pushing them too hard on metals, but little filing jobs or trimming upon soft alloys (6000's 5000's aluminum/copper/brass/lead alloys, for what I've checked) is pretty safe. Just don't use too much down force or you might rip out the diamonds destroying the file. Just move them softly back n' forth 2-3 times each time, check n' go, check n' go until satisfactory results. You gonna be surprised how quickly the job is done. Suitable both for professional and beginners. Price Worthy. Purchase recommended.

Can I use this on metal? like aluminium?

Yes but don't push hard on them, because the diamonds goes away ! They are not firmly secured on the needles. I have destroyed one needle when using it on iron...

It's is better to use on soft metals, like aluminium, copper, brass etc. And I suggest you not to put hard on while using it. Let it do it's job mate :)

1 thumbs up!
I believe i have the same set of files. These are tough and very "sharp". Makes easy job of any filing needs and will last a very long time considering the diamond abrasives. I also have a set which are a bit larger and longer than these.

Excelente articulo, el elemeno abrasivo solo llega a la mitad de la lima pero "que mitad", se lleva la fibra de vidrio y el carbono cono si fueran mantequilla, no se que tal iran en metal pero no es para eso para lo que las compre.
Muy buenas limas e indispensables en cualquier taller.
