This jig belonged to my Father-in-law Bob, it’s a jig for sharpening hand saws. It was in a pretty rough stage when I got it, I started to work on but it has a ways to go before I’m finish, it will need alot of rust removable to the metal work, when I first got it I didn’t have a clue what it was and even less how to use it, but given enough time even this bird brain of my can figure it out or give-up and ask you all WHAT IS THIS??.

Wow. So much rust it took a year to rehab it. :)
Awesome design. Best one I’ve seen. I might have to copy it.

Wow nice restore Rodman! I like how the end curves around the saw handle.

You have to paint the knobs now.
