    FILER GUIDE FOR HAND-SAWS

    Sharpening a saw can be one of the most "difficult" tasks for a woodworker. I built this guide for sharpening hand-saw teeth at the required relief angles, for both rip saw and crosscut saw.

    Inspired in an old tool from 1987 hard to achieve (at least where I live) and using materials available to anyone, I show you the step by step to make it by yourself.

    It is very important to clarify that the files work only forward. Therefore, the force when sharpening only has to be in that direction and the backwards without pressing, thus, we will avoid premature wear of the file.

    Very nice job and build. What every one with hand saws need. I have one that was manufactured many years ago, but your looks better.
    Great job.

    I've never seen one before. Haven't watched video yet but elements are absolutely clear. A big smile for the angular adjustments and means to retract without dragging file. I don't use many handsaws though own some, want to build this for pure recreational sharpening.

    Mikhandmaker,

    I've been a sub on your channel for quite a while now and enjoy everyone of your fine builds and videos. The quality of your videography is in my top 5 out there, simple, elegant music, perfect shot selection, lighting and length. Superb and hopefully inspirational to others. The shadow of the saw on this one was a beautiful nuance.

    You are imho a true craftsman and a pleasure to have you as part of the HMT community. Using hand methods and simple tools to create functional works of beauty are being lost...again imho. I particularly liked your use of geometry in this one to lay out your parts and passing on that simple technique that can be used in everyday life of a maker/craftsman, is Most admirable. Years ago when I taught board drafting and ACAD (early days of) I found it to be effective in teaching the CAD students how to achieve complex shapes using that simple skill. My favorite was to have the board students draw a 4 bladed fan with compound tangential curves with only a compass and ruler. Once they got to CAD it was a no brain'er using the same simple geometry with faster tools.

    Thank you for what you bring!!

    PJ
