How would you like to be the guy who hand-cuts each point on the rasp… pass! Without even looking at a price guide, I would guess that these are probably way above my price point. But very cool video

Thanks for posting that link. I will be looking at and treating my rasps and files a little better now, I think.

I use them, and currently have 2. I am saving for 1 more. I have a 10 grain cabinet, a 13 grain round rasp, and am saving for the 15 grain modelers rasp. Truly a lifetime tool.

Thanks for the video.
Take note of the use of belt grinders to shape and smooth the bodies….. My favourite machine and no shop , wood or metal , should be without one.

Really cool video, and my wife thought some of my projects had detail, this blows them all away.

If I knew where I should be using one of these, I could spend the money for the quality that seems to be going into them. Cheap files and rasps in my current collection aren’t adding much value to anything.

My smile came when the guy was doing the rows of points freehand. I can mess up a straight line with a ruler.

How about some insights from LJs on best practice use for this quality of a rasp.

Steve.
