OK, so for anyone else just getting into hand saws and sharpening, I just spent about $60 getting some needed saw files and a new saw set. I bought a couple of one size saw file as I simply have more saws that will use that size file so…
I figure I can shop for deals when I don’t need them right away, but for now I got a half dozen saw files in varying sizes and a saw set to get started. Guess I better get started on making a saw vise.
I don’t have a lot of hand saws. Just 5, but I like the older saws and they need sharpening. For what it costs to have a saw sharpened once, I can buy a bucket of old saws at a yard sale or flea market. I’ve watched Brit’s video and a bunch of others as well. Once I get the saw vise together I think I’m ready to start sharpening my own saws.
I’m probably not going to post much about sharpening. I think that’s been covered really well here on LJ.
So what’s my point?
So I’ll let you know, but right now I’m happy to be trying a new skill to add to my mental toolbox. :)
