      I bought half a dozen Nicholson files from Home Depot last summer. I use this one for general smoothing and shaping. Its a comfortable size for cleaning up scrapers. Don't try to use them bare, you'll stab yourself in the palm with the tang (just trust me on this OK?) Either buy the cheap plastic handles, or make your own. I turned a few by chucking up a blank in my little drill press and pretending it was a lathe, and that works well. Then when i had access to a lathe again, I had more fun turning handles on the lathe and using bits of salvaged copper water pipe for ferrules. Buy a file card, or at least a fine brass brush so you can keep them clean.
