I´ve been studying the the art of saw filing and I needed a new sawvise so I decided to make some very reliable, I have to say it works out satisfactory. After that I wanted to write an article and make a video to show and explain my saw sharpening technique. Here is the blog to get the best from your saw sharpening with vid included. I hope you enjoy it !!

Ben: get Google’s got a button that translates any language to any language, only in text tho… it didn’t work on the video part of that link, but it did translate the text to English

I enjoyed the crosscut sharpening video. I haven’t had time for the rip sharpening video.

The new vise looks nice but what did you not like about the other one? It looked nice to me :)
