What is the coarseness of the files?

The RS PRO 4 piece engineers 12 inch set features files with a second cut coarseness.

What is second cut?

Second cut (also called double cut), refers to the coarseness grade of the cut. A second cut file features two sets of lines that create a cross type pattern, forming the teeth of the file. A second cut features medium weight teeth and is ideal for removing a moderate amount of stock quickly. There is also bastard cut that features coarse teeth and single cut that features fine teeth.

What is the correct technique to use?

Due to the teeth design on files, they are designed to be used with a forward or push stroke, using steady, even and long strokes. Filing too quickly and aggressively can damage the material you're working with.
