A good set of files is a staple of any shop. Unfortunately quality files have become harder to come by these days. Pferd is one of the few companies making an uncompromising set. Although they offer all their files in handled versions, I thought it would be a great opportunity to experiment with epoxy resin and wood stabilization. In this project I create 5 different tool handle designs. This was certainly a fun project and I learned a lot during the process. I did notice however that the dye I used seems to change color during casting as well as loses it’s hue with exposure to UV light, so I would recommend something other than alcohol dyes.
