Bizibilder has made a filing machine

A vertically set file that is driven by a motor.  Bizibilder has made this machine from published drawings and intends to use it for filing metals during the construction of his various hobby projects.  Sometimes known as a die filing machine these are no longer produced commercially although for certain jobs they are invaluable.
