Topic tags/keywords: sharpening veneering

Does anyone have any thoughts on sharpening a veneer saw? Files to use? Tooth depth etc. I have a saw which will clearly benefit from some dental care!
Thanks Jim

I once sharpened a cross cut saw, that was bad enough, even that required the eyes of a hawk.

Fortunately I have a saw sharpening shop in town…...that’s the way to go for me.

Good luck with it.

Hi Jim,

Although I’ve never done it myself, I managed to find the following resources which should give you a good idea of the process.
