Yes, I'm going to learn but in the meantime I have a decent Disston D-7 5 1/2 T I picked up to for $4 at the Elephant Trunk today but it can use a file job. Or should I just get a new file and punt?

That's a good saw to start on. Big teeth are pretty easy. Get a good file and try it yourself.

Dittos they are not hard to sharpen.

You can make a saw vise. The files are cheap. You can pick a tooth setter for around $25.

Paul Sellers has a good series on this.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.

Fortunately, I live in Amish country. They all know how to sharpen saws and don't charge much.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

Matt Cianci is in Warwick, RI, not too far from your neck of the woods.

Worked for me, watched the vids, bought a file and I'm smiling. Pretty easy after doing my homework. Down the road I see a saw setting rig. Thanks for the input folks.

Good job!





Smaller teeth can be a little harder, but the concept is the same. It's a pretty simple operation once you learn to do it. Glad you figured it out.
