Sharpen your own metal files

  Re: Sharpen your own metal files by Timberwolf (I haven't tried this...)
Part of the problem of files, is that people underestimate the importance of taking
care of them. They toss them in a can, or a drawer, or the bottom of a toolbox and
expect when they need them to have them perform satisfactorily.
While I am far from a pro, or even a gifted amateur, over time I have come to have
a small collection of files and take pains to use and store them correctly.

Behold, the "Stroke a Genius" file rack. Original idea from a man by the name of
Guy Lautard, author of a series of small books called "The Machinists Bedside
Reader."
