    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    Sign me up. Its on my calendar already.

    Should we/can we bring our own saws? What about files and saw sets?

    I haven't been to Bill's workshop before so I will need directions.

    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    Good question, if you have files and saws you want to sharpen that's fine but not necessary. If you have a saw vise that's great. I'm planing on having at least six vises there. I should have enough saw files as well. Saw sets I have a few and I'm betting that will be enough. I at this time have plenty of cross cut saws to be worked on I'll have to find few more rip saws, and some more dovetail saws. So with all that said if you have it and want to bring it that will be fine.

    Bill will send out a PM to everyone right before the workshop with directions.

    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    If you don't have a saw to work on, I bet I can find one for you to practice on. And as Richard said, I'll send a PM to everyone a few days before the workshop w/ directions.
    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.

    Richard, my regrets but I won't be able to attend this workshop after all. Please cancel me out and remove my name from the attendee list. I've edited my original reply to note this change in my status.

    Hope the workshop goes well!

    Re: Handsaw sharpening workshop signup

    I look forward to seeing you. I have picked up six rip saws with teeth cut and no set, I also have six crosscut saws with varying tooth counts. I want to post this now, if you are interested in purchasing any of these saws after we finish the workshop they will be available for purchase cash only. I will sale these at my cost, I'm not trying to make a profit here. I just feel it's a great way for someone who may want a good saw that they have sharpened at a great price. If you don't that's ok I'll sale them elsewhere. Now that being said, I don't have but one or two dovetail saws for the class, so if you have one and you want to sharpen it then please bring it. You will be happy that did, and you will have the skill and the confidence to do it again when needed.

    Just to reaffirm I will be there.
    Can I bring a saw that is as old as Raymond?
