I have only had what I would call decent to good results on one of my old hand saws as far as the sharpening goes. Its sharp, it cuts but its not a knife through butter just yet.

The whole process is really straight forward I just have to get used to the feel and keep a consistent angle as I push the file.

I planned on making my own saw vise but I ended up finding an old cast iron Disston saw vise on ebay for pretty cheap so I got that. It holds the blade very tight.
