Files & Abrasives

When working with materials, files and abrasives will ensure your piece has a polished and perfected finish. Depending on the material you are working with, however, and depending on the type of finish you are aiming for, there are several different file and abrasives for you to choose from. At Alec Tiranti, we stock a wide range of options, ranging from riffler files to abrasive waterproof paper, essentials to your crafting toolbox.


For instance, our range of diamond abrasives will help you achieve smooth and exceptionally fine finish. They work by securing real diamond particles to a nickel or resin file, which can then be used to wear down and smooth over any rough edges. You may choose a diamond hand file in this case, or opt for a set of diamond rifflers for a more diverse and varied set of tasks. This diamond file set comes equipped with a range of file heads, making for a more versatile range of uses.


For covering larger surface areas, or more precise and curved angles that a file is unable to smoothly reach, our abrasive cloth and paper are an excellent way to smooth down any splinters or bumpy surfaces. The waterproof nature of the paper means you can easily work with it, even when using other liquids in the process.
