Bill in OKC too
And you can use copper pipe to make a ferrule to keep the wooden handle from splitting. Golf balls make a good file handles, too. You could even (gasp!) buy handles. My local toolohaulic enabler, Steve's Wholesale Tools sells injection molded file handles a variety of sizes for about $0.79 each. I bought about a dozed of each of four sizes. Once you have more than a couple of files, a way to store them is necessary, too. Some ideas here:

And if a file does not come with a handle, put a handle on it.
One handle for each file, not a changeable handle made to be swapped among files. That is a nuisance and a waste of time.
A cheap turned wood file handle will seriously improve the joy of filing.
