    Masonry bit, would not have guessed, but, it makes sense.

    Those bits cleaned up well.

    When I shot photos and videos for my in-laws 50th anniversary party, it was dictated to me that I would wear a fancy suit. I was the best dressed person there. I was also the only person rolling around on the floor to get the right shot. It was kind of nuts. Have not work the suit since.

    Ok..sharpening is on hold for a few days, until a new file gets here....

    This morning...stopped at a few garage sales....kind of skimpy....spent a dollar bill. Got the ''treasure" home, and cleaned it all up...then outside for a couple photos...
    IMG_9197.jpg
    Seems to be marked as a BELKNAP or NAPMAKER No. 17.
    IMG_9196.jpg
    7 ppi, filed rip. never had a medallion bolt. 3 bolts, steel, never been plated. 26" length. Still trying to bring out the etch a bit better...

    haven't sharpened it yet..test drive went great,,once a bit of wax was applied. Cuts fast, and straight...handle has about 3 coats of amber shellac.
    Stay tuned...

    Steven, def check out some saw sharpening links. I would also buy some flat mill bastard files and use a block of wood to joint those teeth before just going at them with a saw file. This will enable you to get the tops of the teeth all at the same level so every tooth is doing work instead of just the random high teeth. I also use Dykem layout fluid to help me see when I reach the tip of the flat that I created with the flat file from jointing. A sharpie can serve the same purpose.

    I would also highly recommend making a block of wood for the tip of the file to help you hold the proper rake angle. You basically drill a hole on a small piece of wood that the tip of the file will fit into and draw the rake angle tangent to the hole. Then you drive the file into that hole so that the face of the file that is doing the sharpening is parallel to this line. Now you just hold this piece of wood parallel to the bench (or floor) and this will enable you to maintain a consistent rake angle on the face of every tooth. There are jigs out there that serve the same purpose but I find using a piece of wood to work just as well. You can also use this same technique for crosscut saws and cut the fleam angle on the ends of this piece of wood. You just hold this piece of wood so that the angled ends are 90deg to your saw plate and hold that for the entire file stroke. You just have to be sure to change to a different piece of wood or rotate the file when you sharpen the other side of the crosscut teeth. It's hard to describe this little jig in words but there are lots of places you can find it. It really changed my saw sharpening consistency.

    You also will need a saw set. A well set saw for its intended purpose is a thing of beauty.

    Last bit of advise is to get yourself a magnifier headstrap. This thing has paid for itself over and over in my shop!!

    Here's a link to great resource on saw sharpening. There are countless tutorials out there for sharpening handsaws. They are a little tricky to get the hang of but once you use a very well sharpened saw compared to an iffy sharpening job you will never want to let your saws get dull. Once you get the teeth reshaped and set properly, maintaining this tooth geometry with just some small touch ups goes really quickly. It's just like setting up new chisels or plane blades, once you get the back of them flat your will just need to concentrate on maintaining your bevel angle.
