Pretty much my experience, I use just above the lightest set and it seems to work for rip. I’ve also found that even if the shape isn’t 100% perfect one of my refurbished saws still cuts better or as well as my high dollar hand made saws.

This morning I re-toothed an older English Dovetail saw from a 22 tpi crosscut to a 12 tpi rip, took less than an hour and turned a worthless saw into a great cutting tool.


It works as advertised. Solid, easy to clamp and makes sharpening a pleasure. I expect a shop made saw vice would work as well, might not be as easy to use but it would also cost less.
