I remember where thier was 2 hanging on the wall.....it was at Mike's Hobbie shop in Porter Tx....try this number: 1-800-Rail-Fun
what you are looking for is a tire file by: Mico Enterprizes I did a search of the web and didn't find anything on the business, but I met the guy last year at the Winternats.

McMaster Carr always has them in stock search under carbide rasps. Cost is about $20.00 a little price compared to others.
