Saw Sharpening

I get repeated requests for a source to get vintage saws sharpened. I have just found a sharpening service that has been in business for 100+ years in the sharpening and tool making trade. My cost is $10.00 per saw and if you buy any saw from me I can have it sharpened at this price.





Crosscut vs Rip

I get inquiries frequently asking the difference between Crosscut and Ripsaws. Here is an illustration that should help.
