Yeah - they give me the creeps, too - or rather the frame of mind that dreamt them up.

To lift or not to lift will always be a debatable subject. When I did my time the instructor always told us " lifting the file and banging it back down was a waste of effort, Just remove all down pressure and draw the file backwards which helps to eject any chips attached to the file" " always finish on a forward stroke." ( no comments pls Whether this was right or wrong I had no idea at the time and still don't so I have followed that routine ever since. The use of a file card at regular intervals is the key to file life as far as I can see. With the advancement of modern methods I have no wish to find out whether a file can be worn out or not by my physical exertions.

Seth Gould is currently a resident artist at the Penland School of Crafts, this allows him to concentrate on specific items like this chest without having to worry about commissioned work.
He also teaches blacksmithing at the school and runs workshops for specific projects such as hammers or dividers.

I practice the zero pressure return for the same reasons and if the material is pinning badly I may apply a bit of pressure during the roughing stages and chalk the file.

As I say, it may just have been sound effects, but it didn't sound like it was being pulled backwards without any down pressure.

Thanks for posting that Jason, it is an absolute work of genius.
To those that comment about bypassing the security etc, you are totally missing the point.
It was made as a demonstration of Seth's work, and is a puzzle, not Fort Knox.
Know the sequence, and you can unlock it. It isn't any sort of security box.

Fantastic, I can't begin to even imagine how the work flow was mapped out for something like that. Big respect.
