    I have a few old handsaws that I inherited from my great grandfather. I’ve been able to sharpen the rip saws using Paul Seller’s technique:

    What I can’t find is a comparable video for filing crosscut. I understand the theory of it, but can’t execute the technique without a bit more hand holding.

    Does anyone out there know of a good video or two on the subject? The best I’ve found is Tommy Lie Nielsen’s video:

     

    Thanks,
    Jacob

      "Sharpening Western Saws"

      Brit01425 posted a two hour video on youtube called “Sharpening Western Saws”. Its crazy long, but worth every second. It is what really cemented my understanding of the theory. I looked over it several times because of the length, but never regreted taking the time to watch it when I was done! He files a saw flat and recuts the teeth, and explains at length in true Brit style. Check it out.
