Recently, I was fortunate enough to acquire a filing machine that was about to be dispatched for scrap.  It has good bearings, is well balanced, and works very well.  The only problem seems to be in obtaining the parallel-sided files with parallel shanks to fit these machines. I have only the worn 1/4" round and 1/4" square items that were with the machine when I found it.
Does anyone know of a present-day supplier?

Hi There
Harold Hall is doing an article on building a die filing machine for MEW.
It will have details of how to modify files in part 2 or 3.
