    I only sharpen my little 14 tooth per inch dovetail saw and fret cutting
    backsaw. It is important to address rake angle and set, and he does not
    mention direction of file stroke (toward toe on push cutting saw sharpening
    tooth bent away from you) But this guy probably takes all for granted as he
    is a veteran. Sharpening handsaws was a breakthrough in my woodworking, it
    makes such a difference.

  10. DadOutdoors says:

    How long does that take, for the whole saw? Are you taking only one stroke
    per tooth?

    You are learning from a man who BUILDS FURNITURE for 47 years. the guy in
    the video has been SHARPENING TOOLS for 30 years. And you say hes doing it
    wrong? Yeah Ok.

  13. Ben Kotowicz says:

    This was excellent instruction! I had a dull circular saw and cut a plank
    of hickory. It took a long time to push that saw to the end of the six foot
    board. My smoke alarm went off. I located brand new triangular files and
    then I sharpened the blade using the method above. I cut another hickory
    plank. This time it only took about a minute. Big difference. And no brute
    pushing and no smoke! Thank you Sir to your simple and good video! Best
    Always Mr. Carson – Ben

    It would be nice if you actually managed to get across what part of the
    blade you are filing and at what angle. Maybe a drawing to illustrate this
    at the beginning would be helpful.

    @39ynnoj Sure, just don’t call someone a “fucking phonee” until you post a
    vid of YOUR sharpening method…

  17. LordInksworth says:

    Yes you do – I just stole your old saw.

  18. Collin Riley says:

    By the way, thank you Mr Carson, enjoyed watching your video and expertise.

  19. Daniel G says:

    If you actually owned and used a quality handsaw, you’d know the answer to
    both those questions.

  20. John Winter says:

    @ridemybikecooper First of all, the strokes have to be quick, and you have
    to apply a bit of pressure, not just rub it…then, you have to follow a
    pattern, not start from the middle…then, you don’t want the teeth at 90
    degrees; that’s too much, you won’t be able to cut. you start at the end
    with the top of the file horizontally, i.e the teeth are at 60 degrees, and
    you slowly raise the angle (not to 90) also, you don’t do it from both
    sides, just on one side. that’s how you sharpen a saw…..

  21. willie otoole says:

    I wonder if these guys have a clip showing how to watch paint dry – or
    would that be too exciting?

  22. melbea03 says:

    concise precise to the point thank you

  23. ThePDog74 says:

    “that creates too much heat and dulls the file at the same time”

  24. schpoingle says:

    ‘dulls’ the file.

  25. Benvolio Foster says:

    so… no mention of rake or phleem… Difference between rip and cross cut.
    No mention of what files to use with which types of teeth. Internet
    indignation aside, this simply isn’t a guide on “how to sharpen tools“ –
    it’s a just camera pointed at someone who is doing so.
