The Nicholson mill hand file with ergonomic handle has a rectangular shape and single-cut American pattern teeth on the sides and edges for sharpening mill or circular saws, draw filing, and finishing metals. The file tapers slightly toward the point to ease access into grooves. The file has single-cut American pattern teeth for finishing, sharpening, and deburring, and square edges for filing sharp corners. An attached rubber-coated handle provides an ergonomic grip.
Hand files are used to remove material and smooth and shape workpieces. They have forward-facing cutting teeth and cut when pushed over either a stationary or rotating workpiece. Single-cut teeth have single rows cut diagonally across the width of the file. Double-cut teeth have two sets of rows cut in opposite directions. American pattern files have three coarseness grades. Coarse, also known as bastard cut, is suitable for efficient, heavy material removal where finish is not a concern. Medium, also known as second cut, offers average material removal and finish quality. Fine, also known as smooth cut, provides the smoothest finish. Swiss pattern files have eight coarseness grades, from 00 (coarse), 0 (medium), and 1 to 6 (fine to finest), offering a smoother, more precise finish than equivalent American pattern files.
Nicholson manufactures hand tools and power tool accessories. The company is headquartered in Sparks, MD.
In 1864, William Thomas Nicholson invented a machine that could consistently produce high-quality files and subsequently launched the Nicholson File Company. In doing so, he revolutionized the file manufacturing industry. In an era when hand-made files were preferred, Nicholson proved his companyâs machine-cut files were not only more affordable, but offered more consistent quality than hand-made tools.
Through the decades that followed, Nicholson File Company continued to prosper by refusing to compromise the superior quality of its products. Maintaining this commitment, Nicholson was able to adapt and expand its capacity to make products that served an infinite variety of demands, and by 1893 the Nicholson exhibit at the Worldâs Fair in Chicago featured more than 3,000 unique styles of Nicholson files and rasps. By the 1950s, Nicholson dominated the file market worldwide.
More than 150 years after its founding, the brand remains at the forefront. The unwavering dedication to quality and constant attention to detail instilled by William Thomas Nicholson, embodied in the famous slogan âTwelve perfect files in every dozen,â is still evident in every product sold.
Today, as Crescent Nicholson, the brand is a market leader for manual material removal products from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The extensive Crescent Nicholson line of products includes files, rasps, saws, and accessories. Crescent Nicholson manual material removal products are among the more than 2,600 quality hand tool products offered under the Crescent name â products professional tradespeople know they can count on to get the job done right.
