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…..

its actually to hold the file and joint the saw teeth. Just search “saw jointer”

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.
