I am looking at buying this set of rasp I was thinking of the fine and course set. Do I need the mediums as well? How are they? Comments? I will be using them for typical shaping for smaller type projects like tool plane/saw/chisel handle replacements maybe some making the occasional plane and that sort of projects.

@Don W, I have some Steelex rotary rasps and they do exactly what they need to do. At those prices you probably can’t go wrong. Let us know.

Those rifflers will get in some tight spots, but they leave a rough surface
and don’t cut nearly so nice as a patternmaker’s rasp, a microplane, or
an Iwasaki file.
