I was teaching saw sharpening when almost everyone I ever met or knew of had abandoned such practices. As a direct result from my efforts more people are sharpening their own saws than I have ever seen before and the numbers keep on growing. Who’s doing it? Amateur woodworkers all around the world are!
I put this video together to encourage anyone out there who might feel intimidated at the thought of taking a file to their tenon saws or handsaws, be they economy purchases from eBay or premium saws from high-end makers.
Five minutes and your saw will cut like a hot knife through butter – even in oak!
