I sharpened my first saw on it yesterday. An Atkins "silver steel" 5-1/2 pt rip saw. Thought I'd start easy, 5 deg rake, 0 deg fleam, 0 deg slope (or undercut if you prefer).

I made several errors in setup, but finally figured it out. I must say for the occasional sharpener like myself, this thing is a great help. I don't have the greatest of eyesight so it allows me to get down to the blade without worrying about where my file holding hand is.

The saw cuts beautifully!
