Just wondering if there is a certain brand of file you guys use to file out the tang hole in wa handles.
I'm using a cheapie set of small files I picked up for $20 from the hardware store and it's taking me an hour or so to file the hole. Is that a normal amount of time or could I do it faster with better files?
It seems so time consuming! Someone needs to invent a power tool to do it. Or is there one already?
Edit: should have mentioned this is in regard to a dowel constructed handle with a void in the dowel for the tang. Just talking about files to make the slot in the end of the ferrule.
