I ran across this mixed in with a bunch of tools at a local flea market. What caught my attention was a tag on it that read ’’saw set’’. Does any one have any ideas???

There are no identifying marks to be found on it…..

Andy has a good series on sharpening. In one of them he goes into jointing. He makes his own jig, but yours will work the same. You just loosen the screw, slide a flat file in and tighten it down. The tool then holds the file perpendicular to the saw plate when jointing the teeth.

Hope it helps!!

I used one last summer. Bought it a a garage sale for $0.50 I thnk. Clamped a decnt file in it, and jointed an old saw blade. I even picked up the companion to this tool, a Saw Set. look that up as well.

The jointer

The Saw Set, and as long as we are talking saw tools

Might as well pick up one of these $.89 vises.

Nice catch Marty.

Marty,
I have a plethora of ideas….
None pertaining to your inquiry though!!!
