I have been threatening to make a file till for a long time
now, and today was the day. I've had the idea for a while,
and today I dug up enough scrap to make one. And several
galoots have asked me to show what I finally come up with.
I thought that this till would be plenty big enough for all
my files, but I was wrong. I think I may remove all the
rasps and put them in a separate till, made in the same
design as this one.
Another thing I have learned is that I will need a color
code system on the end of the handles for identifying the
files. Something like black for a flat rasp, and then black
and white for a half round rasp.
Red for a flat bastard, then red and white for a half round
bastard, and so on with the white addition always indicating
a half round.
Right now I only know that the biggest files are in the
back. But this is huge improvement over what I had before, a
small till and lots of files lying everywhere for want of a
I still have a number of files that don't have handles.
Project for rainy days.
