    Improvement

    Got this saw from my FIL a few years back. Cincinnati Saw Co. He got it at a yard sale. Thought I'd work on it a little bit. You can see it needs it!

    Very nice, Victor.

    Sort of silly, but serious question: The tools you used to rehab the saw look like they could have come out of any of our granddad's toolboxes...except for the Sharpie. What did they use in the old days before Sharpies and Magic Markers were available?

    Whoa there Victor. Here i thought i hit paydirt. Finally a Neader on our forum that will pass on the "knowledge" except for saw sharpening.

    So i follow pic 1 mmm pic2 getting warmer, pic 3 now we talking who beat that poor thing up. Then pic 4 wow i like the handle on your file, then pic 5 what all finished.

    Robbed i tell you. Robbed. What happened between 4 and 5. Thats the meat and potatoes that count?

    You cannot go round teasing people like this.

    Jokes aside great job. Did you put any set on those teeth? Did not see a saw set in the tools pic??? and looking at the cuts the new ones seem wider or is it just the picture.

    Any chance you would do a picture tutorial for us visual learners?

    This is high on my Neader journey. I have about 6 saws waiting in the wings to do. Some are deliberately practice versions some i dont want to mess with until i have convinced myself i have reach the right level of skill.

    So how about it??

    Thanks for posting what you have , great to get the ball rolling.

    We need guys like you here.
    cheers

    Vaughn, The purpose of the Sharpie is to help me keep track of where I have filed. I've read folks used to use soot from an open flame or perhaps a small wire with nuts (as in nuts and bolts) affixed to the ends.

    Rob,
    Before I reply to your questions I have a bone to pick with you. I am not the spelling police. I can ignore most any spelling mistakes as they are usually unimportant in the transfer of knowledge on internet forums. However, having run without a pack for too long now and greatly desiring to be accepted into a pack again, I have become a needy needer that feels he has been kneed enough already. I do not wish to alienate you for it is you Sir who has drawn me into posting with your dovetail challenge. Please Rob, it's neander. For Neanderthal. Acceptable alternatives for me are knuckle dragger or galoot. OK. Enough said. I feel better.

    I made that file handle last week after gleaning the how to from the innertubes. Thanks to all who share.

    I did not set this saw. It is a dovetail saw filed rip. The process of filing introduces a very fine set has been considered desirable in a dovetail saw. I also do not own a set tool small enough for the job.

    Rob, I want to encourage you and all others to file your saws. It is not difficult. I'm on my last cup of coffee and when I finish this post I'll head out to the garage (er shop) and attempt a proper tutorial without any teasers.

    Thanks for the correction

    Victor,

    Thanks for correcting the spelling there. I was starting to wonder if there was a new breed of hand tool weirdo that I hadn't run into before. Knuckle dragging works for me.

    On the setting, yours is the 1st time I've heard that the act of filing adds or introduces some set. It makes some sense to me, but I'm surprised it would be enough to be useful.
