This is a tool I bought some years ago, principally for model aircraft work. I'm not sure if it's still available.

This is the working side of the abrader. Unlike the Perma-Grit and similar tools, the abrasive surface is not made up of small particles welded onto a substrate. Instead, the metal surface seems to have been punched from the back side with many small holes. I don't expect this to be as long-lasting as tungsten-carbide grit files, but it does have the advantage that the surface is very even. T-C grit files often have occasional larger particles which can cause scratches that take a lot of work to remove with the next finer grade of abrasive.
