5. Standing position and guiding of the file

Before beginning to file make sure that the vice has the correct height and the workpiece is firmly clamped!


Figure 26 - Correct height of the vice

Procedure:

- The weight of the body is resting on one leg; the other leg is always straightened; both feet have to be firmly on the ground

- The file is moved with the arms only, not with the upper part of the body - the upper part of the body must not swing!

- The file is pressed onto the workpiece when pushing the file forward only; It is pulled back without pressure!

- The file is to be guided so that the movement is always horizontal!

Note:

Support the movement of the arms by analogous movement of the body when working with big files only!
