I did give them a brush with the card every so often as I could not find my chalk.

If you're doing a lot of ali, especially the softer alloys, it's worth while breaking off "in the middle" of a job to give them a quick brush up. Not only does it give you less of a task at the end of a job but it also increases the cutting efficiency of the file/s.
As to files "multiplying", yup, they tend to do that! OTOH they are useful tools and though I don't own any turning chisels, I guess that piece for piece they're cheaper than turning tools.
