alvispace Posted February 1, 2010 Share Posted February 1, 2010 Hello new found friends. I was happy to see such a site exists in my search for help tonight, thanks to all who created/built this site. I'm new to the forum and tried several types of searches before just coming out and asking. If the topic has been discussed already, please do point me to where it resides. I came across some very old, but very nice tools this weekend. One D.R. Barton 1832 hand ax, two large Washburn splitting axes, 3 flat files (Disston & Grobet) and 4 rasps (unknown brand). The question I have to all of you vastly superior/experienced metal workers is this: Can files/rasps be restored once worn/dulled? If so, is it a machining process or by hand with what tools? Thank you all for your help. Alvis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
