If you use triangle files for fret work; this idea might be of use. Especially when doing re-crown jobs with wide flat tops on the leveled frets. Crowning files don't work well for me in that situation. It's a drum stick with the file mounted at a cant to allow access to the upper register of the fretboard. Cheers, Tom
Good idea... and probably lots of control, too. Reminds me of those long-handled chisels that make it so easy to navigate around in trimming dovetails.
Nice idea ,, batta-bing! Tom
My apprentice training officer would have had a fit if I'd had called it a triangular file, we had to call it a three square file. Love the wooden engineers chests, I've got 7/8, a few years back you could pick them up at antique fairs for £30 complete with tools. Now you're lucky to find one empty for twice that.
I love wooden machinist's tool chests but the Gerstner chests are out of my price range. I tried the Harbor Freight version and its joints came apart within minutes of being loaded with tools. I then tried the Grizzly and it has held up like a champ. Very sturdy.
