Bubba, like you I just started sharpening my own saws. I have the Pax saws from LV. Could not believe the difference from out of the box to now. The Pax saws are supposed to be hand sharpened from manfacturer, but when I looked close at my rip saw I saw flat spots on many teeth. Must have been a Friday when they sharpened mine. Anyway, it took me a couple of attempts and a couple of hours to get it right. The thing cuts great and runs straight. A lesson I learned was to use VERY light pressure on the saw set. Too much pressure will dent the side of the tooth. Not a problem now but after a few sharpenings I’m going to have to deal with them. And patience is critical when learning to do this. I got the saw vise from Tools for Working Wood as a Christmas present the the wife. The thing works great.
