    Buenisima idea, me acuerdo que en la revista Hobby apareció algo similar, pero para fabricar papel de lija. Yo las habia hecho, pero el pegamento no era tan resistente (no usé epoxi)

    Great idea, i remember that in "hobby"magazine show a similar project, but for make sandpaper. I made those, but the glue wasn't very strong (i didn't use epoxi)

    Just brilliant simplicity......5/5*

    Truly amazing idea :P I Have A File I Bought For $5 A While Back And It Broke, Ill Be Sure To Use This!

    You only capitalize the first word in a sentence.

    Great idea!!!!

    step 7&8 are the same thing

    Awesome. Is the rod you're using a pencil?

    It does look like a pencil, but probably isn't; pencils snap too easy...

    No, it def. is. Look at the image above, you can see the lead (ok, ok, graphite) in the back. Msolek, what say you.

    Well, that's what I thought at first too, but it looks square, and the graphite is normally round....

    Looks like a type of carpenter's pencil. While some have rectangular bodies and leads, others have a oval body, oval/rectangular lead.

    It's not an ovular pencil either. It's just a regular pencil.

    If you look at the words it actually states that it is a pencil.

    Great instructable! I like that you said "and prison bars"! Haha! 5 star rating!
