Here's a set of (5) tiny embedded-diamond files, just in case you have some tiny embedded diamonds that need filing. They are 3-1/8" long OA, with rubber handles. The file portions are 1 mm to 2 mm wide, with assorted pointed-round, pointed-flat, and blunt-flat tips at 150 grit.
Life too dull? You need a whetstone, and this one, while it's not a stone at all, is a big improvement. It's a 4-sided diamond sharpening block, 6" long x 2-1/2" on a side, sitting snugly in a wooden holder with slip-resistant rubber feet. The sides are 200, 300, 400 and 600 grit, so you can work your way up to a razor's edge on knives, chisels, or anything that needs a little edge.
So you won't want to lose this 6-piece set of diamond burrs. They're on 1/4" shanks, and are 2-1/4" to 2-3/8" long OA, with approx 1/2" dia heads. The set includes one of each shape: cylinder, round-end cylinder, round, egg, inverse cone and pointed cone. All are #40 grit. Incredibly handy for those tough jobs!
Who doesn’t like a polished look? Your better metalworkers and welders use these flap discs for a shiny finished look after the grinding wheels are done. Our each is a trio of 3” zirconium oxide-coated discs, (1) each at 40-, 60- and 80-grit, and they come with an “R” type holder and a 1/4” shank. Billy, our zirconium oxide polishing buff (yes, of course that pun is intentional) says they do their best work at approx 13K rpm.
This plastic scraper that removes paint and stickers from glass and wallpaper from walls comes from Red Devil®. It's 12" long with 4" wide steel blades in a locking head. Comes with (2) replaceable blades. (Red Devil® #3248 at your local hardware monger.) Made in Israel for a change.
For those hard-to-reach contours, nothing beats a wet/dry sanding sponge. This one measures 4" x 2-3/4" x 1" and is marked "Very Fine/Fine, Tres Fin/Fin, Muy Fino/Fino," which we make to be approx 220 grit, although we didn't count them.
Than what? Than a lot of stuff, including pinkie fingers. Sanding pens are made to reach into tight spots and smooth otherwise unreachable places. This one is 5" long with a 3/16” dia pack of retractable 3/4” long fiberglass bristles. Keep them short, just out of the nozzle, and they work best.
Super-long Q-type tips are for people who don't want to get too close to their ears. Actually, these are tech swabs with cotton tops and wooden sticks for lab work, so leave your ears out of it. Good for other body parts, though, and for too many craft applications to list. You get (3) packs, for a total of (300) 6-1/4" long fuzzy-topped sticks.
Sharpen your teeth. On your saw, silly, unless you're a vampire--although who isn't these days? Our saw-file measures 8-3/4" long with a 4-1/2" long triangular file with sides made for sharpening saw teeth. CJ, our Associate VP for sharpening stuff, says "Ignore the label, use a little chalk before filing and keep a wire brush handy for after." Good advice generally, we think.
