Re: Sharpening a back saw question

Ralph Lipeles
If the teeth are badly worn you will have to file the teeth to reshape them, set them with a saw tooth set and then sharpen the teeth to the correct angles. I have taken saws that are just a little bit dull and touched up the teeth with a triangular file. It's a quick and easy project. If you do not have a saw sharpening vise, use two strips of wood to protect the saw metal and clamp in a vise.
