Proper file set to use with MintyPi

Post by Mouse » Sun Apr 28, 2019 10:47 pm

Rather than dig through amazon reviews to try and find what I think will work best, I figure I'd just ask here. Does anyone have a link to a good file set to use for cleaning up the holes for the mintyPi?

I would get something like this. You just have to make sure they are "jewelers files" as they are smaller.

Are those the ones you used with your builds? The screen shots of yours builds look awesome, so if those are ones you used I'll get those ones.

Actually the exact set that I use is an old set. It says Blue-Point #HBN 120 on the case. Its a red envelope with all the files in it.

Either one looks good. I wouldnt spend any more on "better" ones though. You are only working on an Altoids tin. It's not the strongest material in the world. Patience is the most important thing anyway. And drilling tiny tiny holes first and working up from there.
