Needed to file a Patio Door Handle
I am a woman who attempted to switch out my patio doors pull handles inside and out. Inside super easy lock set screw in and out and done. Outside previous home owner drilled the holes to close to the end of frame so the door could not be closed completely and locked. Drilling new holes was not an option, existing hole would be visible on the inside. Bought this tool to file down the side where the hole is for the screw. Took about 15 minutes, first try it now was a perfect fit!!!! This is a niffy tool to have on hand.

    I wished that there was file on all four sides and not just 3- that would make it a whole heck of a lot better. Othere than that it performed as it should do.

    Bought this file specifically to sharpen axes and hatchets. And it did phenomenal. Exceeded my expectations and sharpened it like butter. This was my first attempt at doing something like this.

    I feel like such a grown up, I own a file! Needed one to sharpen some tools and this did the job very well and very quickly. Selected this model since it already had a built in handle. Used a few times now, still performs like new. Low cost, but high quality. Approved!

    I recently purchased 2 shower caddies. They had 3 wire shelves that had unusual triangler shapes. I cut plexi-glass to the shape of the shelves on a band saw. I used the file to shave the the edges to place in the wire shelves. Worked like a charm. I will recommend the Nicholson hand file to everyone I know.

    Did the job it was needed for and saved a great deal over buying a grinder. The file was used to grind/fiie down TV mounting bolts that were too long. I believe this tool will be very handy for other future uses and the cost was good.
