Stephen, I’m not talking about big companies doing the manufacturing – I won’t bother with them for a moment – it was them that got us into this situation, so I hardly see the point in rewarding poor behaviour.

If a suitable current supply can’t be found (and I’m dead keen to see something from Tsubosan) then I will first be presenting the data to Liogier in France (who already make a range of “nearly there” saw files – but you won’t find them on the net, or anywhere else).

If they can’t be persuaded to make an extra €100k or more per year then I’ll go to Honauer in Switzerland. They currently do not have a range of saw files, and are willing to custom make to a standard of excellence.

It may transpire that even if the Tsubosan’s are good that another supplier is required because of language difficulties etc. To show what I mean, these are some quotes from their website:

“Conventionally, as the tip of the blade is processed by electrolytic polishing (PAT) and the sharp blade of the knife-like material is processed in advance, the concave part bosom is deep and suitable for the material that is easy to cause clog like stiffening plastic, bakelite, wood and other light metals.”

“It the industry first, we make both ends type file surface, made easy to guarantee the balance of suffering.”

I am also going to research if there would be any benefit in using Chrome Steel or not. I should think the additional cost would be irrelevant, as the cost of the steel would be a very small component in such small files.
