I'm building an RV-3B, so I might have more need for tools than some of the other builders, but Scotchbrite wheels are only needed, in my opinion, for dressing out dings and goofs. For that, they excel.

I am more of a "Norm Abram" kinda builder vs "Roy Underhill"

Files are definitely in my list of goto tools though.
