Walter Welsch, Dynabrade's founder, developed the first Dynafile® Abrasive Belt Tool as a method of improving the task of hand-filing metals and other hard surfaces, while making this process quicker and easier than ever before. Thanks to this innovative, entrepreneurial spirit, Dynabrade thrives to this day, continuously upgrading the product offered, through extensive research & development based on market needs and new technological advancements in the tool and abrasive industries. Today, through the continued hard work and determination of its employees, Dynabrade has earned a worldwide reputation for excellence, holding a leadership position in the innovative design and manufacturing of unique portable power tools and related accessories.
