Q: When using a metal file, always remember to bear down on the forward stroke only. On the return stroke, lift the file clear of the surface to avoid dulling the instruments teeth. Only when working on very soft metals is it advisable to drag the files teeth slightly on the return stroke. This helps clear out metal pieces from between the teeth. It is best to bear down just hard enough to keep the file cutting at all times. Too little pressure uses only the tips of the teeth, while too much pressure can chip the teeth. Move the file in straight lines across the surface. Use a vise to grip the work so that your hands are free to hold the file. Protect your hands by equipping the file with a handle. Buy a wooden handle and install it by inserting the pointed end of the file into the handle hole. Question: Protect your hands by... A. Dulling the teeth. B. Dragging the teeth on the backstroke. C. Using a vise. D. Installing a handle. E. Wearing safety gloves.

(a) :  a
(b) :  b
(c) :  c
(d) :  d
(e) :  e
Answer:  d
