Apparently metal filings for the third version of the spell are acquired by somehow using the grindstone in the farm smithy in Dinky, but I haven't been able to figure out how.

It must have been a bug, because it wasn't working an hour ago. Now there is a syntax for grind:

grind <object> down
grind steel down
You start to grind down a steel.
You grind down the steel, creating a small pile of metal filings before discarding the remainder.

g filings
Some metal filings.

l filings
This is a medium pile of tiny, dust-like pieces of metal, about three handfuls.

The item used is destroyed, the amount of filings produced probably depend on the weight of the item.

The steel (~6 lb) gave 3 handfuls, the lump (~40 lb) gave 12 and 13 another time. For a long sword (3 1/9 lb) it gave between 1 and 2 handfuls. For a falcata (5 5/9 lb) it gave 3 handfuls.

iron breastplate = 7 handfuls (14 2/9 lb), medium metal shield = 9 handfuls (17 7/9 lb), metal gauntlets = 2 handfuls (4 4/9 lb), metal helm = 5 handfuls (9 lb)

So except for the lumps it seems to be giving about half the lb in handfuls.

I got 20 handfuls of filings for the lump, the 12 and 13 handfuls were from someone else. I'm therefore guessing that how much you get from grinding is based on some skill, something like

My bonus is 229, weapons 185 and armour 147.

An item made from wood and iron did not work.

Oh! Okay, that's good to know. When "grind" only brought up the soul command, I figured I was missing something and it was a different verb or it'd only show up if I had the right object.
