Re: Cleaning files fouled by aluminum

Dunking it briefly in a caustic solution should loosen stuff as well (hint - don't try this with your pistons or aeroplane!) and will degrease it as part of the bargain


A narrow (< 20mm) strip of mild steel works just as well for removing steel swarf from files.
