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.
