      I ordered the files. I'll report on how they are.
      Ahhh, gottcha now.. Funny, bang-good. Never tried them, some folks like them. A lil scketch for me.

      Im sure the ones you ordered from the legit dealer will fit the bill. JR

          The NSK micro tools are nice if you have the budget. The usual jewelry supply houses should be able to supply diamond burrs:

          Also, if you feel like taking a flyer on a small rechargeable hand tool, Culiau (China) sells a small one and a set of "high carbon" bits for <$50. I bought one on a lark and it seems to work pretty well the few times I've used it so far, though it may fail completely tomorrow. It only takes tools with 3/32 or 2.25mm shanks, if that's important to you, but there are plenty of quality suppliers for that size tool.

            Thanks. I'll check the hand files, and if that is not handling it, I'll move on further to burs and power.
