    Yeah, I kind of wish I had it when I re-plumbed and re-wired the ceiling above my basement shop. Those 100+ year old floor joists are HARD.

    Loigier are also excellent rasps, but expensive. I have a couple of Gramercy rasps that are decent, and as I recall they are a lot more affordable than the French makers.

    I finally got a guy to give me a reasonable bid, so I think I'm going to save my knees on this one. I do need to punch a pipe through the foundation to reduce the footage of trench needed.
