Ok, I'm working on a project right now where
I will be needing to make SMALL accurate holes
in very thin Styrene.. Basically I know what would be
perfect are some very small files . I'm talking from
1/32nd up thru 1/8th inch.. I need ROUND and SQUARE
and RECTANGLE.. I have looked all over Home Depot
and Lowes and no one carries TINY files ?

Any help guy's as to where someplace might sell a
group of different shaped and sized files THAT small ?


THANKS... :D

Art supply stores and Radio Shack have micro files (usually a set of like 5 or 6).

Radio Shack also carry micro drill sets which is a manual drill pen with a set of like 6 tiny drill bits .

I'm surprised that you could not find any at Home Depot. Tha's where I found mine. I concur that needle files are your best bet. A search for "needle file kit" will bring up a bunch.

Needle files, yes, but you might have difficulty going down to 1/32 inch in any shape other than round with any needle files I've ever seen, unless Micro-Mark or a jeweler's supply place has some truly tiny needle files, or you can carve (such as with a finely-pointed hobby knife blade) instead of file. For round holes, you can get drill bits in the numbered series with very small increments between sizes.
