    Have a Mill file.Used it on the Panel saw.....

    Have a bright spotlight that I can shine across the teeth, to see how they are coming out....and a hand-held magnifier, to see the teeth.

    The newest saw, the Crusader, does not need all that much sharpening done.....just a refresh.

    Saw set is in the house...Millers Falls made. #214......

    Dykem? I have been just letting the rust do that....

    Tooth counts above 8ppi....I start to see double....so that a 11ppi looks like 22....I send those to a sharpening service @ $0.60 per inch.

    It is not so much a matter of handles....it is more about holding onto them....fingers tend to get crampy, after a while

    Saw vise is a Wentworth No. 1.....

    I sharpen saws when they are rehabbed, and they seem to stay sharp for a year, or two. Mostly, it is about fixing other peoples screw-ups.....

    Already tried out the 18" or so of the panel saw I have sharpened up.....cuts fast, and straight...just a tad rough....will stone it, after the rest of the teeth are done.

    Saw files? Stanley 5, or 6" Extra Slim taper....@$6.00 each. Been getting 4-5 saws per file. About time for a new one...
