    There was a lot of controversy here in Australia during the early 70's as many turners were injured by bits of brittle reconstrued files. Agood friend of mine gave up on them when narrowly escaped injury but he was turning for hours every day (big saving on gouges that need sharpening regularly). Keep up your good work. I think we will see lots from you in the future especially with two workshops to use. Thanks.

    Please be careful. Files have a very different metallurgy to cutting chisels. They are brittle and can snap sending out bits of metal at high speed. You only have two eyes.

    I just saw some files-turned-gouges at the Habitat for Humanity Restore near me. Not as nice looking as these, though.
