Great design. Thanks a lot. Would have loved a stand to take 10 files. Ok I'll just print 2 stands.

The handle was very loose on my files (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NPUKYS). I didn't want to simply scale the model because I loved the size and feel of it.

My files measured around 3mm and the hole in the STL measured around 3.48mm. I reduced the hole to 3.2 mm and got a snug fit. The modded handle is attached in case it's helpful to anyone

I made some for my file set from #obbyking which are thinner with a 2.04mm shaft. I scaled these to 68% on X and Y and 85% for Z and they fit perfectly. nice design.

I've used a plasma cutter to remove the stubborn thin disk from the file handle!
