3. Auxiliary means for filing

Auxiliary means for filing are clamping devices which are to be selected according to the purpose of clamping the relevant cross section of the workpiece.

Requirements:

The workpiece is to be clamped so that the file stroke is always horizontal.

The workpiece is to be clamped as firmly and securely as to eliminate any springiness and displacement of the workpiece during filing!

In addition to the clamping devices also used for the working technique “manual sawing”, such as:

- vice
- vee clamps
- angle clamps
- protective jaws,


Figure 16 Vice

the following auxiliary means are in use:

Clamping jaws for round stock:

Specially formed vice attachments with halved holes permitting vertical clamping without squeezing of thin round stock.


Figure 17 Clamping jaws for round stock

Clamping jaws for threaded bolts and thread clamps:

Specially formed vice attachments with halved holes permitting vertical clamping of threaded bolts. For small screws a thread clamp is used.

Angle vice:

Clamping device for clamping of small, flat parts in a vice at an angle of 45 degrees. It is used for filing of bevels only.


Figure 19 Angle vice

Hand vice and pin vice:

Clamping device for clamping of small parts, mostly sheets, to be filed on any support.

Pin vices are also often used as universal clamping devices for other working techniques (drilling, counterboring, riveting).

Sheet metal clamp:

Angle attachment to extend the vice jaws serving for horizontal clamping of longer sheets.
At the protruding end it is mounted with a small clamp or hand vice.

Note:

Profiles are to be clamped with suitable attachments which can be made from wood so as to suit the relevant form.
