I just got some files and some wooden handles to mount them on.
However I didn’t see that the handles (from Otto Frei) states in the
description “Must be drilled to accept file tang.” This is the
handle I bought-
I am a total novice when it comes to tools and assembly. The handle
already has a pre-drilled hole but I was wondering if it needs to be
a larger hole (not to large of course). I also see some handles that
say they have a steel die inside the handle that cuts it’s own
thread on the tang. Are these the easiest to use? I’m wondering if I
shouldn’t have gotten that one instead…
My boyfriend says I should just push the file into the handle
without drilling it because there’s already a hole. But I’m not sure
why they’d make a note that it must be drilled before inserting the
file if it were already ready to accept the tang.
Thanks in advance,
Feeling silly asking this question, but asking it anyway.
