Keep Your Files in Tip Top Shape
by Judy Freyer Thompson
Instructions
One of the most used and most abused tools in your tool kit just may be your files. We depend on them daily to clean up edges, file down rivet shanks and even make pin backs. They are a workhorse and need to be taken care of so they can do their job. Minuscule filings can fill the grooves in files making them
less effective in their cutting action. I find using WD-40™ and a file cleaner is perfect to keep my files in tip top shape. Not only will the WD-40™ help wash away the filings caught in the grooves, it will also remove any rust that may be on your files.

Make sure you are in a well-ventilated area. Lay the file on paper towels and spray one side of the file at a time with the WD-40™, and use the file cleaner to gently remove debris from the file grooves. After using the file cleaner, spray the file again with the WD-40™ to remove any debris left from using the file cleaner. Repeat with the other side. Dab the file with the lint free cotton cloth. Performing this routine maintenance will prove to give your files a longer life!
