Forge de Saint Juery - The Tool Works

The dying art of hand making files. Forging file, grinding and finishing rasp blanks. Hand cutting the teeth, hardening and finishing.

Note the mechanical power hammers in use and ram shift a bit due to wear. A flypress is used to arc a curved rasp. Traditional filemaker's anvils, hammers and chisels used to cut teeth. A salt pot is used for heating to harden the files.
