Default dad's old tool

One of the tools that came down from Dad, I can remember watching him use it. He was a carpenter. Any guesses?

I would have said a tooth setting tool for a cross cut saw, but not sure///

I am also thinking it is some kind of tooth setting tool James.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

In our granddads' age everyone sharpened their own saws.
Especially bow saws etc. If you lived on a farm you sure in heck weren't going to ride 20 miles into town to get a saw sharpened to cut firewood, eh?

My Dad used to have one for a normal carpenters saw....I wish I still had it.

Finding someone who knows how to sharpen a saw is getting more difficult every day...

Yep!
Dad worked as a lumberjack in the winter and as a carpenter in the summer. I think I still have his somewhere as well as a couple for hand saws .most of his old stuff was sold at auction after he died but I still have a few things. Also have a couple old saw vices.
