Hand-Saw Sharpening: A Focus
Saturday, June 23, 2018
As seen in Ron's Sharpen Your Handsaws video with Popular Woodworking, he will teach you how to
properly maintain your saws for years of useful life. You will learn the proper tools for the job and how to
shape, sharpen and hone a hand saw by hand, and will have a look at how a mechanical saw filer works.
Learn the differences between sharpening rip teeth vs. cross-cut teeth, the need for proper fleam and
set, and how to quickly read your sharpening job. You will understand why gullets should almost never be
opened up or sloped and how to sharpen both sets of cross-cut teeth without turning the saw around in
Students will each be provided a project rip saw and crosscut saw (2 saws) to work on in class
and take home for practice/use.
