great score, indeed. People sometimes get all strange about this, but I like to use old files (disston, too) and make shop tools out of them. Chisels, gravers, punches, scrapers, etc. You can make all sorts of shop tools from old file stock and heat treat it yourself.

I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs

Well now. If they are still usable as files, that is a major score.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
