      We regularly use Abrafiles to modify prototype parts. They are now no longer manufactured and we have been unable to find an alternative or another supplier.
      In desperation we have bought old stock Abrafiles from Ebay and we are down to our last two.
      Can anyone help?

      Have found a good replacement for the non-cbtainable Abrafiles.
      Vitrex Tungsten Carbide Rodsaw blades do the job on mild steel or stainless.Although I thought they were primarily for cutting tiles, the 300mm long version works well on metals.
      We bought ours from Amazon at around £5 each
