I just saw this on the Lee Valley site and am about to order it. Looks like just what I was looking for.

I have 3 saw sets: a vintage Disston Triumph and the 2 modern Somax saw sets. I prefer the Somaxes.

Consistency mostly. Freehanding is inconsistent until you get a lot more practice and experience. I have a couple of little wood blocks that I’ve used so far, following Ron Herman’s example. This looks more accurate and user friendly, and will hopefully give me more consistent results.

Have your say...
