JFPNCM I've never used one but had the opportunity to watch the process. This guy stared by cutting all the teeth off the hand saw, cut in a new set and then proceeded to sharpen them. All in all about 4 hours work The finished saw cut beautifully.

are you glad you asked...

I have versions of this one that are close enough to be called the same one/thing even though they were my GF's.... there are three of them all in different widths that will handle about any length saw you could have..
