<p>Crossing files are a type of machinist’s file that are used for shaping concave surfaces. Crossing files have two rounded faces, one shallower than the other. This makes for a cross section that resembles a pointed oval. As the curves on both sides of a crossing file are slightly different shapes, it can file concave surfaces of different depths. Their pointed edges allow them to shape inside tight areas in watch hands and gears. This process, known as ‘crossing out’, is where the file earned its name. Crossing files are tapered in width and thickness to allow them to file in tight spaces. They are double cut on all faces.</p> <p>CORRADI has one century of experience in manufacturing of hand tools for metal and wood working and it is the only Italian manufacturer of Precision Files. The company, established in 1910 by the CORRADI brothers, is still owned by the same family and is now managed by the fourth and fifth generation. Thanks to continuous research and development, the company has always taken advantage of the best available technologies and the most advanced processes in the field of files. All the products are checked under strict parameters during all manufacturing steps. Furthermore, at the end of the process, each tool is individually tested.

the best I've found

This file is great for shaping the outline of a violin and removing wood in a controlled manner. The file is very sharp and I cannot think of one issue with the item. This file is the best item I've found for this use.

le più precise

Le lime ovali Corradi sono molto più precise di quelle Vallorbe, soprattutto negli spigoli dove i piccoli denti delle due facce si uniscono.
