Aimed at those new to saw sharpening, this instructional video is 2 1/4 hours long and covers the theory, the tools and the practice of sharpening western saws. You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios.
I really hope you find it useful. As to the production quality, I’ve done the best I could. I had to record it outside, so there is a bit of wind noise in places and some other background noises courtesy of my neighbours, but hopefully it won’t spoil your enjoyment.
It is best viewed full screen in 1080 high definition with external speakers or headphones. If you have AppleTV, you can play it on the big screen too. Alternatively, if your laptop has an HDMI connector, you can link it directly to your TV using your TV as an external monitor. So pop some corn, grab a cold one and enjoy.
This instructional video has been provided free of charge and I’m not looking to profit personally from it in any way whatsoever. However, every year my local community puts on a charity Christmas carnival, the purpose of which is to raise money for local charities by collecting donations from the general public on the day. If you find the video useful and would like to show your appreciation, please consider making a donation at http://www.highcliffecarnival.org.uk/
When you navigate to the site, you’ll see a link on the left called Make a donation.
Click that link and it will take you to the Donations page which will explain how you can help us make a difference to people’s lives. At the bottom of the that page is a Donate button.
Click that button and it will take you through to Paypal where you can make your donation in a secure environment.
Please give whatever you think is appropriate. 100% of the money you donate will go towards the carnival and help up raise even more money for charity on the day. If you have any questions, post them here and I’ll do my best to answer them. It would also be great to see some photos of the teeth you sharpen. Thank you for your support and good luck with your saw sharpening!
