Nice tools! I love the automatic saw filer. It has that classic industrial look!
Yessir Ernie, it is one cool looking machine. There is a lot of stuff that has to happen automatically in that one little machine. Its pretty amazing for sure.Ernie N Ky said:Nice tools! I love the automatic saw filer. It has that classic industrial look!

There's only one place I know of in StLouis and they won't even mess with anything that's not carbide anymore. I know of no one for hand saws at all. It is a dying or a lost art. I don't think hand saws are actually used to a great extent anymore so there's not a great need for this equipment....but then most of our old tractors aren't used either, but they are appreciated none the less....just like old tools and machinery.

How many places do you know you can take a saw or blade sharpened and have the set put back. I don't. Glad you got them.
Yep, makes me a little green as well. :mrgreen: Srue beats pliers and a file for settin' and sharpenin'.caseman said:
I'm sure there are still a few around in the small towns Steve. Probably can't afford the cost of advertising and all their work is by referral which is why we don't hear of them. That and I bet none of them are young men (like me and you)... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:4imnotright said:Wendell
There is a gentleman in Waterloo that still sharpens hand saws. He's in his 80's, don't know how much longer he'll be able to do it.
I'll be honest Dave, I've never set the teeth in a hand saw in my life, but sure have done my share of circular saws. I usually do the cut off saw on the tractor about every other filing...which is about once a year or so unless I hit a nail or something....But that's alway's been with a 4 pound hammer for the anvil and a smaller ball pein to do the setting. My Dad would sharpen the hand saws by hand and after setting the teeth would lay a sewing needle on the teeth to see if it would slide from one end to the other....and cuss if it didn't.BigDaveinKY said:Yep, makes me a little green as well. :mrgreen: Srue beats pliers and a file for settin' and sharpenin'.caseman said:
