Files, Rasps and their Makers


America must and will for ever be wholly dependent upon the Sheffield file makers for good workmanship and quality of files.

John Radley  
Sheffield Independent, 1856  

There are few tools more essential in the development of industry than the file. Perhaps for the very reason that it is so universally used and so absolutely indispensable, the file does not commonly receive the attention it deserves as a tool.

Henry Disston & Sons, File in History, 1920
