Diamond files are like normal needle files but work much quicker.
Used for refining and smoothing edges, removing burrs, smoothing solder joins/welds, removing scratches etc
You can use diamond files as they are or with a needle file holder.
Either use by hand or with a lapping machine such as an air lapper (not ususally seen in the Jewellery world but aren’t unheard of!).
Used by jewellers, sculptors, precision engineers and mould tool polishers.
Generally used for more cut than a standard needle file. Ideal for using where there is excess solder you want to remove quickly. Leaves a fairly smooth finish which you can the finish with Micro-mesh, wet & dry etc.
A really good use for diamond files is also shaping and dressing ceramic stones and rubber points. It is much less damaging for the file than a standard file and more accurate.
