I don't know how anyone ever gets a new set of points to work using just a piece of a paper bag. Where do you even get paper bags? The term "point file" may be misleading. The ignition point file I use most often is really a burnishing tool. I do have have some thin files but would only use those on a set of points if they were badly pitted. In that case, I'd finish with the burnishing tool and put a new condenser in there because the old one is the wrong rating or has failed.
