The Speedway ring filer may seem expensive to you, but it will keep the filed edge square, which is important. Doing it by hand with a hand file,if you have never done it before, you can trash a set of rings in a hurry by the gap not being square. Also, file away from the outer edge toward the inside of the ring. You can chip a moly coated ring easily if you file from the inside out Also you will likely raise a burr on the top edge(flat) of the ring and bottom side, so with your hand file,gently knock the burr down before installing it onto the piston
