    Hand Filing

    Even though we have power tools such as angle grinders and belt sanders, hand filing is an important skill to have. Here, I do my best to demonstrate proper use, and some good maintenance habits to have with your files.

    I was working at the hardware store and a customer came in and asked me for a file. I asked, "Do you want a flat bastard?" Customer replied, "No, gimme one of them round m_______s."

    I loose interest when a guy is tossing his files around. Mine are covered and used properly, not tossed around or thrown in a box all together.

    Wasn't "tossing my files around". Nor are they "thrown in a box all together". I have a toolbox especially for my files. It's lined with old cloth and the files are separated by old cloth and newspaper, as you can see. For the sake of time I had them laid out on my work bench and a few on a smaller table next to me so I could easily grab what was needed instead of rifling around and wasting time, as it was already a long video. (Near 20 minutes.) Sorry that you lost your interest.

    Just saw files moved around on a metal table. I stopped watching. As to my comment on files in a drawer, this was just a general statement on what I have seen in various ways be it in real life or YouTube, etc. I'm a real jerk when it comes to tool abuse. Anyway, my apologies if I insulted you.

    It's fine. Misunderstandings happen. But no these are the only tools I have, and my files are my work horses. If they go down... Well, you know

    My best files are lovingly cared for, the rest I toss in a drawer, have used a hammer on, been near welding, and I'll cut 'em to pieces if I choose to. I own them.
