If you do mostly small scale stuff, as you and I seem to do, constructing a mini die filer powered by an electric drill isn't too difficult...

Marv, I've run across pictures of your die filer a few times when searching for same.  Really like the simplicity and elegance of your design.

I think this is a die filer file ?It is about 6 inches long so the machine might have quite a large "throw"  also some Peter Stubbs files  20 at a carbon sale !!  also i have been thinking about making a die filer and have a couple of sewing machine engines and also a food processor headstock that has an inbuilt 'crank' arrangement ...sorry just checking the size of photos i can put up ?!!!

Willy, do you have larger photos? Those are only a few pixels wide, cant see anything - looks like it put in the icons rather that the pics?
