depends on its length. if your clicking when you walk, then you may need a saw of some kind. a sander works if its not too bad. or a big old diamond file. dremels work but you have to be flexible and fast, or it will burn and create a sort of knife edge.
My parents both when to the Podiatrist to have their nails trimmed. In certain situations, Medicare will even pay for it. My mom had many health problems and insurance paid for hers. Dad saw the PA since he didn't have any conditions necessary for insurance to pay. The PA was much more reasonable than the doctor. This article lists reasons that Medicare will cover it...
this is a diamond file set, you want the middle ones, the rougher ones for toe nails. the finer ones are better for finger nails and the finest is good for sharpening things. the roughest, i have yet to find a good use for. the handles are small though. i used 2 corks from a wine bottle and glued them on. then sanded it to be ergonomic. and they work quite well. you risk loosing an eye using a clipper.
How about a Dremel tool with a grinding wheel attachment??
I saw in a movie titled " World's Fastest Indian" starring Anthony Hopkins as an old man who set a world land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats on an old modified Indian brand motorcycle. He was quite the creative mechanic and used a big grinding wheel on his toenails.
A great movie and it was based on a true story.
If you haven't seen the movie, you would really like it Roger.
they do make rotary nail tools, much like a powered down dremel. if you can sit where you can put your foot up on a platform without tipping your chair backwards, or stand where you can put your foot up on the bathtub side safely ( on the floor not in the bathtub) one of these tools might help. https://www.amazon.com/Fancii-Professional-Electric-Manicure-Pedicure/dp/B06XJ64173/ref=sr_1_8?crid=1QVU2SYSYKOBB&keywords=rotary+nail+trimmer+for+humans&qid=1585078412&sprefix=rotary+nail+t%2Caps%2C194&sr=8-8
I finally bent to my wife's pleading that I go to a nail salon. That's not really my style but in the spirit of cooperation I went. It was okay until I noticed the water around my foot turning pink and the employee applying pressure to my big toe! Predictably, it was one and done for me.
Can you stand up on one leg and bend your knee resting on the arm of a chair or short stool? “If you can’t bring the mountain to Muhammed, bring Muhammed to the mountain”. But then again I think maybe Muhammed wore sandals
