Topic tags/keywords: blade

I am just finishing reading a book in which Chris Swartz wrote many chapters ( an excellent book by the way). Because of this book I desire to use more hand tools (as when I was a kid).
This is one of the reasons why I am trying to find a Stanley #7.
Last weekend I bought a used (but in decent condition) western rip saw.
I cleaned it and it now looks very nice but I need to sharpen it and to set the teeth.
I know how to do both ( I did it a long time ago). I have a file to sharpen the teeth but I cannot find a tool the set the teeth. I found a few tools but they are for larger saw/teeth.
Where can I find one for smaller saws and for a decent price?
Where could I find a used one?
Thank you.
Bert

I just went looking for it and I can’t find the dam thing it has been laying around so long without using it and now I can’t find it I would give it to you if I can find it.
As soon as it gets warmer I will clean up and should be able to find it.
My father had that so it could be one for a buck saw blade.

You can not go wrong with the Amazon one it would cost me more than that to ship it to you.

Kunz makes a smaller saw set….I believe I’ve seen one in the Highland Woodworking catalog. There is also a great how to to on hand making a back saw in the Shop Notes issue for Jan/Feb 2010 (issue 109). It has a great sharpening jig and using a nail set for tooth setting.
