    Strange they are filing the back side of the teeth.

    Anybody know how long it takes to set up?
    In my 20s I sent off my crosscut saw to be sharpened, I was told by machine, but it came back lop-sided, so I sent it back again.

    I have 3 of these filers. I gave up playing with them when I needed to wear glasses to read, and the price of a new hand saw was less than an hours labor.
    Evidently,he didn't read the book on how to file. The feed pawl, is supposed to push on the tooth you just filed. He is also just gumming out the saw because the file isn't at an angle and he's hitting every tooth.
    This is the first step in 3 steps to sharpen a hand saw.

    I wonder whether you would like to donate your saw-filing machines, Mr Tucker, to a charity which sends tools to Africa? If you do not use them, the charity receives a lot of saws and, since there is apparently no-one there to do it by hand, they have to pay for them to be refurbished. I did wonder whether, with setting up, it might be quicker to sharpen a saw by hand. That was a good Disston in the video, better than mine!
