The files are Bahco brand.
I've attached photos for part numbers.
My experience with getting these was a shamozzle. Took over a month. All the excuses, Covid, computer fail, computer upgrade, didn't someone else order them etc etc!!!
Anyway a local-ish company ordered them in for me.
Building Component Sales. Ph 02 49207525. I am not affiliated with them. In any way except as a customer.
About 10.00 - 11.00 per file.
I had done a fair bit of looking and they were the closest retailers. Hindsight probably should have tried nationally...
If you'd like, pm me your number and I'll give you the Bahco rep number I have.

I was trying the Barcode numbers from the boxes and returning nothing useful. The new end-box photos supplied have them sorted.
I'll pop in an order for a few and pick them up next week.
edit - Ha! Just logged into my Gasweld account and look whats there

I caught the goddam COVID!
Been crook as hell. My granddaughter went for a 15 minute visit one Friday Arvo to Loving Daughters friend. That friend had a visitor in the morning with the plague. I cuddled my GD later that night - I was there 5 minutes.
Jesus! Bang, bang, bang.... One Friday, ripped through 4 families. SWMBO and I had it worse as we're old! LOL!
Just about over it though... when I am, I'm going on an adventure to BUY SOME STUFF!!

Woodpixle, hope you get better quickly.
My procrastination has ended... at least for now.
I finally got the courage to file the teeth.
I used the 15tpi template from Blackburn tools, glued a strip onto the side of the sawplate.
Then with the DEST file I took 2 strokes to create a notch for each tooth. Then went back over with 3 more strokes to deepen the cut.
My muscle memory wasn't the best at the start. Allowed the file to skip occasionally.
Then using the small file went over all the teeth until the flat at the top of the teeth just disappeared.
So far so good, for me.
Saw cuts, but curves away. So need to Set the teeth.
At this point I have not touched the set, so if the saw cuts a curve, is it my bad handsawing technique?
I'm going to mark alternate teeth prior to attacking them with the set tool.
Do you do one side the turn saw around or just alternate hands. Muscle memory???
If the saw cuts a curve, which side do you gently file? The side it curves too?
Thanks for all your help so far.
