I use a slightly blunt 10" flat file- it easily bends sufficiently, and doesn't cut too fast.

I rounded off the corners on the top end of the file, so it wont catch.

Bloody Hell Brian, with all this discussion, how do you find any time to fit in any paid work, let alone the frequent TV appearances of late.
I suppose it's obvious - no wife & kids! Probably little time spent slobbing out in front of the old TV either.

Anyway, keep up the good work and I'll see you again somewhere before long I hope.

We had to postpone our sawing day (family member in hospital, but all's well now) but have a new date now -

Friday 25th of Jan.

So if you're interested, let me know.

~No, not totally follow. But it does help a lot to put even some bend in.
