Im going through drawers and tool boxes and dug out my files. A good75 or more of them, Mill files, knife files, rasps, half round, triangular, square, cant mill bastards etc etc
Ive been keeping them in IBM punch card drawers...laid on top of each other..not a good thing.
What method have yall found to be really good for storing files, ready for use? About 1/3-1/2 have handles. I was at a swap meet some years ago and bought some 20 or so Nicolson handles, all new red plastic and have installed them on the most used files..and a bunch of the other files came with handles.
Files run in length from 6"-20" long. Some of the woodworking rasps are pretty big.
Many of the handles have holes in them so I could..could hang them from spikes..but not all do.
I dont use files a hell of a lot..but when I do..I like em sharp and not have to hunt for them.
Ive been the one to snag the files from machine shops that go out of business..so I have a bunch of them, and a fair number of duplicates.
Oh..any good suggestions for sharpening the few that need it? I know that many places dip them in acid. What kind and at what concentration? A box of battery acid perhaps?
Gunner, back to file carding aluminum from some files (GACK!!) and a bit of rust on one or 3
The methodology of the left has always been:
- Repeat the lie as many times as possible
- Have as many people repeat the lie as often as possible
- Eventually, the uninformed believe the lie
- The lie will then be made into some form oflaw
- Then everyone must conform to the lie
