Lots of elbow grease but 1/3 the cost of other options to do same job

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FatKid77 WORKED FOR GRANITE FAUCET HOLE PROBLEM
I was replacing the kitchen faucet and discovered the hole in my granite countertop was ever so slightly too small (about 1/16 inch). This file did the trick! Took me about 15 minutes with a little bit of water and the faucet fit. Excellent purchase!

Works well. I found it useful in a shower tile installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MasterofDisaster Must have tool for tile jobs
I used this tile file on ceramic and marble tiles. It is a must have tool for tile jobs. It was perfect for cleaning up the edges on tiles cut with a wet saw. I had to cut some diamond shaped marble tiles into triangles. The file blunted the angle of the diamond enough that I could easily cut the tiles with a wet saw.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick great for stone
I use these for stone carving - after roughing the marble/limestone with chisels, I use one of these files to continue with the finishing. (I then follow it with diamond files and diamond polishing pads). Compared to how expensive some stone carving tools can get, these are a good deal.
You need a soft wire brush to clean out the file on a regular basis (to retain its effectiveness).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DanR Tile Files Exaggerated
Tiles file edges are described as "Less coarse side foe smoothing and more coarse side for shaping". That's nonsense. These files have no effect whatsoever on ceramic tile. The only way to conceivably affect a tile edge is with a very powerful grinder. Although the tiles are not expensive, they simply do not work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigM works as advertised
filed a few 1/4" ceramic tiles to a smooth edge using new file, average effort, worked as good as I hoped, a bit expensive though for this type of tool
