    I will have you know, George, that we used rope saws with sharpened flint rock embedded in it.

    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    George, you can, if you have a dove tail saw please bring it, if we have enough time we will sharpen it. I have six rip saws with teeth cut that haven't been sharpened, this is a great place for everyone to start, when we finish the rip saws we will load up the crosscut saws I have and shape and sharpen these. The crosscut saws will take the longest. When we finish these I would like to introduce a couple advanced item having to do with saw sharpening and restoration of saws. From there backsaws will take center stage, and I would like to work with folks on the things you can do to improve a saws performance and things to look for when buying a used backsaw. We will have plenty of saw vises to work with and plenty of files. Plenty of handsaws, just need you to bring any dovetail or backsaws that you can. Oh and I want to see the saw that's older than Raymond.

    I'm still in for the 14th. FYI, Liberty will be celebrating Liberty that day, with festivities down town.

    Good to know, Bruce. Thank you. I'm just north of Liberty. If anyone is coming down from a northern (I-40/85) direction, you won't have to go into Liberty. Coming from Apex you'll probably come across on Hwy. 64, then north on Hwy 421 to the first Liberty exit. Fortunately, Liberty is a small town and the celebration isn't extravagant, so it shouldn't be that bad, especially in the morning. You may get into a little bit on the way home.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    I look forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning at Bills. To get your saw sharping on. Some of the saws I'm bringing will be for sale at very reasonable prices, also a couple of saw vises are for sale as well. We will get started with the big rip saws and talk about tooth geometry first. I'm excited, how about y'all! See ya.
