Files and Rasps

Poll - July 30, 2013

Files and rasps can be handy to have in the shop. Initially, a tool like a rasp can be intimidating as there are no fences or stops. You just plop it on the surface and go. But once I broke the barrier of straight and dove head first into the world of curved, the rasp soon became one of my favorite tools to use. You can see my rasps in action in this recent video.

So how about you? What do you think of files and rasps?
