    You guys are great, I'm learning more than from any book I've found.

    That is what makes sense to me, logically thinking. And for sure pushing or pulling would depend on which hand holds the handle. By the way, as far as I know, the Japanese saws are usually referred...

    That's what I thought as well. Ok, if using a double-cut file, then whichever direction you go, one row of teeth will be going in the "wrong" direction, so indeed it seems that applying pressure in...

    Some resources specifically say to apply equal (light) pressure on both strokes, e.g.: What is draw filing?

    Correct technique for draw filing

    Dear all,

    As a hobbyist, I learned how to file from books and online articles, rather than in a class/shop setting.
    It's always mentioned that the file should only cut on the push stroke, the...

    Never thought about doing it like this. Gotta try. Is it important which way the file card handle is pointing (same side or opposite side from the file's handle? And for a double cut file, you do it...

    Maybe you're too quick or sensitive to jump to conclusions?

    I didn't mean any disrespect. It was a bit of a joke, related to how relatively accessible guns and ammo are in USA - e.g. buying rifle...

    Do you mean an actual piece of bamboo (round), or a rectangular piece of laminated bamboo wood?

    As usual - a wealth of good information, and some quite conflicting opinions :)

    I suppose in USA you just go out on the street and find some rifle casings? :) Here in Luxembourg I have no idea...

    File cards - yes or no?

    I've read at least 5 threads here about hand files, their usage and care.
    Lots of interesting info, however one topic seems to have divided opinions.

    Several people say file cards are a...

    Thanks, I learned a lot in this thread already!

    But I suppose it can be used to get a ballpark figure of how flat is some surface, or a shaft/axle runout? Using this test indicator I will have to...

    Great, now I know that the lever position can be adjusted by pushing (a bit more than I would call "gentle", but nothing extreme). I guess this is the feature mentioned in the catalog of these DTIs...

    Rev counter hand a bit in the negative zone makes more sense, indeed. How about the main dial, is it normal for it to be at 8 o'clock at rest? Perhaps for applying that amount of preload to bring it...

    Thanks you everyone for your replies. Really lovely forum, I can feel how much collective knowledge people have in here!

    The base is indeed magnetic, but there is no on/off switch like practically...

    Hello everyone!
    It's my first post, I'm a software developer and a beginning hobby metalworker.

    I've got a dial test indicator stand on eBay, and was wondering if someone could tell me about this...
