I’ve got a bunch of old dull saws lying around, so for Christmas I was given a dvd on saw sharpening. So I decided I needed to get myself a saw vise. Well, I didn’t have the money to buy one, so I decided to make one. I scoured the internet for designs and ideas, but finally decided on a design of my own. This one features a cam style locking mechanism, adjustable height/ clamping bracket (fifth picture). The tools you see are my file for jointing the saw, the file for sharpening the saw, and a saw set (which was my grandpas). So far I’ve only sharpened a rip saw, but I’ve got a crosscut one waiting to be done. The vise clamps very firmly and the results were great. The saw cuts like butter!
