. I was given this Illinois die filer several years ago. I have gathered some files for it but, it seems to be going to fast to be useful except for smashed fingers ect.
Has any one else ran into this?
Thanks ron

Of the few I've used, it seemed they all ran at a pretty good clip. Like shapers, I was just getting into the trade as they were on their way out.

There are ways to slow it down. I've been watching for one I can afford near me there great for hand fitting parts. Depending on the motor a simple reostat May work. The router speed reducers at HF sometimes work fine . The motor looks small enough it may work. What speed is the motor if it's 3600 rpm get a slower one or variable speed one.
