    I've been researching and purchasing files and rasp over the last little bit. Good ones are hard to find,..at least they were for me. As with anything else you get what you pay for. Here is a couple of links if any of you guys are in the market for some future buys for your shop. I use mine for powder horns and wood,..so I'm after coarse sharp toothy files. I also picked up some rasps. I hate most all of the other junk out there :mad:

    Dont want to hijack the thread but...
    I been looking to pick up some tools/equipment to make some furniture, cabinets and such for my garage/apartment.
    Always figured I needed planers, tabelsaws, bandsaws, jointers, etc etc. Been investigating and it seems I can get away
    with a lot less than thought. Like a Router table, circular saw, some chisels a good bench with a bunch of clamps.

    My question to the group is. What are the absolute must haves to be able to build half way decent stuff?

    Good table saw with good blades, router, Sanders. Take it to the next level with planer, joiner, and lathe.

    i got a router table i'll never use. find out what is worth, make an offer. its a craftsman, if you are interested in it, i'll find out the serial number. my pop died in 2005. its just sitting in my building. he used to build kitchen cabinets.
