I haven't tried copper: thanks for the tip. It might work well for other files with metal filings, such as fret "dust".
Agreed on the file card which is why I use copper. Even then small particles can adhere to the fine file teeth. A big needle works great digging that stuff out. Tricks of the trades.....
