Route 66 and # 66. Maybe a coincidence? :D
Being a retired Toolmaker, we used these files mainly on metal and mold making. Brings back some memories that have been FILED away. :D :) :D

They are procesion rasps for filing metal and wood work. They work great for refinishing of furniture for the hard to get in places to sand or scrape.

That's not to bad.... they work good on fretwork or jigsaw cut outs, generally used for the "tight spot" or "unusual shape". These are for wood and have a bit of a more agressive cut then needle files etc.
