Re: Files, rasps, floats, rifflers, etc

Jack Guzman from Maine
I use half round nicholson rasps for general shaping,finer toothed hand cut rasps for a smoother surface and files for the best surface before scraping or sanding. I use round rasps for elongating tenons and creating tapers among other jobs. I have many various files and rasps and besides these tasks I find many woodworking uses for them. I could manage without them but I would not want to.---Jack
