I need some guidance on filing stainless steel. I do not have a grinder and I get really nice results from my filing jig with my carbon steel.
I got an order for 154CM, the first stainless steel I've worked with. The steel work hardens very easily and quickly. I know this is the case as my file will just skate across the surface. In my reading many have had the same issue.
I've done some investigation and I see some people using Pferd Corinox files that are specifically for stainless.
I really hope there is a repeatable and sensible solution to my problem while using a file.
Any ideas? I know the compulsion is to suggest I get a grinder but I really enjoy working with the files believe it or not.
I'd appreciate it!
