    Re: Riffler Files

    I also have a little sliver metal holder that holds carving burrs, one in each end. I keep it out all the time (away from the edges of my gouges) on my bench and use it when necessary to clean as I go. In one end, I have a round diamond burr. In the other, I have a tear drop shaped one (I use it the most.) They never clog.

    I find this tool to be most useful.

    I just bought a few rifflers, after hearing about them on this board. I got the very fine ones - and wow, they ARE wonderful for doing cleanup, etc.

    This a catalog that I used to get; I haven't received it for a while. It used to have anvils, swage-blocks, tongs, hammers and even tools for your hardy hole.

    If you ever get to carving harder woods like maple or cherry you'll really appreciate those rifflers

    Yes they do fill up, but if you keep a small brass bristle brush handy, no problem.

    Re: Riffler Files

    I've used rifflers on almost all my carvings; mostly for clean-up work in tight spots. I have not tried the diamond rifflers yet, but plan to pick a set up the next time I'm in a carving store! Have heard they work better than the steel ones. The coarde ones, I have trouble working with as they are too small to hang onto when pushing those BIG teeth around. They are not a substitute for any knives or gouges, but an adjunct to the other tools. Try 'em you'll like 'em!

    Also try checkering tools for background in relief, etc.

    Does anybody use Riffler Files ? Do they work ? I see them advertized but have never heard anybody mention using them.. I have used files on metal but would think they would 'clog up' when used on wood. ???
