    I’ll possibly be having some files off Pferd soon.

    It may turn out some files can only be bought by the box so if mods don’t mind me offloading some to members keep your eye out on the for sale section.

    Same goes for their excellent wire brushes.

    Expensive but last and last.

    What type of files are you looking to order? I need some extra for work so they would replace my home set.

    I’d be interested to see what price you could get for their ‘hoof plane’ file for the other half...

    Yes me two. Group purchase?

    Files and drill bits are the two least replaced items in my workshop. Sick of drill bits that don't and dull files. A decent high quality hand tool makes metalwork a sheer joy.

    Can’t get them through my supplier. Farriers tools are regulated as they should be.

    That's interesting, if I can ask please: why are farrier tools regulated, and why should they be?
    I'm guessing it is for animal welfare, to try and reduce the number of hoof injuries caused by skinflint horse owners
    trying to re-shoe horses, but getting it wrong?
    Do farriers legally need a qualification, like vets for example? I thought they were more like blacksmiths with horsey connections.
    Sorry for the diversion you have sparked my curiosity!

    I've looked on line and can't see a problem. Horse & Farrier Supplies in the Midlands seem to have them on sale with no restrictions.

    Yes exactly. Animal welfare.

    Worshipful Company of Farriers is the approved body and oversees training via its sub body the Farriers Registration Council.

    Rasps and Knives you could probably get hold of, due to the loopy Barefoot trimming crowd.
