Product Details

Individual escapement shaped buff files from Glardon-Vallorbe. 

Buff files or buffing files, are not files in the classic sense but rather ceramic coated finishing and burnishing tools shaped like files, in this case, escapement files.  Instead of using emery sticks, fine abrasive paper or abrasive stones for finishing work you can now use popular needle and escapement file shapes for precise finishing in hard to reach places.

These are the Escapement File Shaped Buff Files

Buff files are coated with a composite that includes synthetic diamond particles.  If compared to an abrasive grit, the buff file would be considered between 500-800 grit (30-20 micron) but if used with light pressure they can be compared to almost 900-1200 grit (20-15 micron). The factory rating for this level of abrasive is G10. When using on soft materials like gold buff files require occasional cleaning using an ultrasonic or a quick dip in alcohol.  Another cleaning method is to use Bergeon Rodico, a popular cleaning rubber used by Laser Welder owners and watchmakers.

Choose from 7 Escapement file profiles:

  • 133.118  LEC3008-55-G10  Half Round
  • 133.119  LEC3009-55-G10  Crossing
  • 133.120  LEC3010-55-G10  Barrette
  • 133.124  LEC3014-55-G10  Three-Square
  • 133.127  LEC3017-55-G10  Pillar
  • 133.131  LEC3021-55-G10  Round
  • 133.130  LEC3020-55-G10  Square 

Buff files are used for beveling and flank finishing in the watchmakers and machinists trade.  They can be used for cleaning up casting sprue lines and deburring jewelry as well as many finishing steps that are currently done using abrasive rubber wheels. Buff files will eliminate marks used by the finest cut files (cut 8) and the coating is anti-corrosive so the buff files won't easily rust. Buff files stiffness will allow you to make sharp edges and buff files shapes help you to finish hard to reach places.  Buff files work great on hard metals like Titanium, Steel and high karat white gold alloys.  They can even work on enamel surfaces.
