UPON ENROLLMENT, STUDENTS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH DISCOUNT CODES FOR SOME OF THE BELOW VENDORS. I RECOMMEND WAITING UNTIL ENROLLMENT TO PURCHASE TOOLS!
Please also note that some of the items below are redundant. This is: a) to give you multiple sources in case one vendor is sold out of a particular tool, and b) to provide you with quality comparisons so that you can make the best choice for you regarding what to purchase based on price, shipping costs, specific product features and any pro account benefits or discounts you may have, etc.
This is the file I ended up choosing in our demo video to create the correct silhouette on my bezel. I used a 0 cut file, but I recommend a 2 cut for slightly more control. So, size 6-2 (6" length, 2 cut). The more shapes and sizes of half-round and crossing files you can obtain, the better!
This is the file I use in the video demonstrations when I need a flat faced file. You could opt for this, a barrette file, the flat side of a half round file, or a traditionally flat file. I like the 6" length, #2 cut!! (6-2)
