I was watching Roy last night and he had C Schwarz on making an English layout square and they had gotten to talking about files and what separates a good one from a not so good one. The machine cut ones have rows of teeth in a uniform pattern which make them tend to “hop” around. He had said that the good ones have no pattern to them and are punched out by hand in a non descript pattern making them cut smoother without the “hop”. I thought that was some pretty good info.
