I just had to post this.
About 9 months ago I purchased a micro set of needle files from a company called Commando. I wanted to wait and use them first before commenting.
Without a doubt, these are the finest micro needle files I have ever used. I do a lot of fretwork and these files are wonderful for getting into the tiniest places. In fact I'm using these on a project right now, the black forest fretwork clock.
Please note, I am not affiliated with this company in any way what-so-ever. I just think if there are tools out there that us scrollers would like to hear about, these tools and this company is one of them. And to top it off they are an American company and the tools are made in America.
The set of 6 needle files I have is the "Commando Product Series No: 160-FIH" They have many other sets also.
Here is a link to the set. http://www.commandoproducts.com/imag...00215.main.jpg
I have a set of small needle files I bought many years ago, these are about 2/3 the size of them. These are the smallest needle files I have ever seen in over 45 years of woodworking. You can put these in your pocket/shop apron like a pen.

It's not obvious from your link whether these are diamond files, but if they are then I heartily agree that for scrolling purposes they blow the regular steel files away.
I have been using a cheap set of small diamond files for years (bought on eBay for less than $10) and it is one of the best tool purchases that I have made.

I have a set of the diamond files, they work great! Being non-directional they can be used a sideways movement in the cuts.
