Does anyone know the history of bandfilers?
I'm guessing that, like so many other machines, they were replaced by CNC and NC.
Was the best application Tool and Die work?

We have one in the shop here. Years ago when they made railroad tie plates, it was used to square up the holes for the spikes. It just collects dust now.
