Re: Files get dull

Greetings All,

Another consideration for keeping files sharp is the way they
are stored. A pile of files in a drawer will dull every time
they rub against each other as you open your toolbox. Files
should be kept in a vinyl sleeve, or wrapped in paper, when not
in use. Some claim a bit of stick chalk in the teeth will
prevent soft metals from clogging them. Keep the teeth clean
with a file card (a stiff flat metal brush).
