When filing with a file, file on a Forward stoke.not pulling back. The file only cuts on a forward stroke. You’ll dull the file pulling towards you. You also won’t remove any metal unless you file in the correct direction.

Bob L. is correct. Also, file toward the cutting edge of the tool (wear gloves.) This way you won’t create a burr.
