Saw file holder
Jointer / Edger

After watching our LJ friend Brit ’s (Andy) blog about saws where he makes a file holder and show a picture of an old one in the comments, I fell in love with the simplicity of the old one and so decided to make one today.

Made a small blog also http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/28887 .

It took an hour and works perfectly well.
Andy was concerned that the wedge could work its way out so I made it extra low, 3 degrees.

This holder can also be used for your scrapers, but I have made another version earlier for that purpose.

Pictures:
1. A selection of tools.
2. The potter tool in use.
3. Dibber in the ground.
4. Tulip in the ground.
5. Row Maker with hole in top to hold the spear.
6. Row Maker in use.

I hope this could be to some inspiration, perhaps even some holders…

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Thanks Mads. I love any tool with a wedge and this one fits the description. I won’t be sharpening any handsaws in the foreseeable future, but I do appreciated the thought and work that went into this clever little jig.

Nice job Mads! Where did you get the file from Mads? Did it come like that or did you cut the tang off?

Very clever and a great little file holder. I can see that coming in very handy for many uses other than saw sharpening.

Hi guys,
Thank you for your always wonderful comments.
Andy, the wedge is holding more than tight enough, in fact it is almost impossible to get it loose if you tap too tight (trust me i did that). The direction of the wedge does not really matter, it depends if you file on the push or the pull, but since it is more than strong enough due to the fact I made a low angle it is fine nomatter the direction.
Best thoughts to all of you,
Mads

Ha! Good one mads, I like the wedge too. Looks like a good tool to make and have around the shop.
