files for what exactly?

edit: d'oh, i thought you meant computer files and stuff like 'dexes. Nevermind, try tool shops, you can normally pick up needle files for 1 from most.

Nope, they're needles files, same as GW.

Screwfix is the best place for hobby supplies you could ever want. I brought 10 (yes, 10) 1mm drill bits at the weekend for 1.49.

make sure to get your own tools because file sharing it wrong :D

If you have a local hobby, or model shop nearby they should stock some fairly cheap, mediocre, or better quality files.

Have you tried Homebase or B&Q? Homebase used to sell a basic set of needle files with handles for just 6.00.

B&Q, Wilkinsons, local craft store and pound shops all sell large files, i have them because they are good for large metal models.

One of those large toolbox sized files is handy for paring down large areas very quickly, like an oversized slottabase tab on a figure. Get one at any DIY store. 3 or 4 passes and they fit perfectly.

And as I have already said, they also sell needle files in sets.
