Saw sharpening for beginners

Posted by on Jun 3, 1916 in Beginner's Courses, Courses | No Comments

When you first use a good brand new saw it cuts cleanly and true. Over time this is lost until you find it hard work to do the simplest cuts. Resharpening the saw will give you that “out of the box” crispness again. Renowned saw maker, Shane Skelton, has developed this course to allow you to do just that.

I am pleased to be co-operating with Shane Skelton of Skelton Saws to present this course. A traditional handsaw maker and saw doctor, Shane has both restored and sharpened some of the oldest and most valuable saws in the world. During this one day course he will teach you the basic skills that will enable you to approach saw sharpening with greater confidence, and he will guide you towards the best tools for the job.

Saw sharpening is a skill that is often overlooked, and which has been largely lost over time.  Most of us tend to shy away from sharpening our own saws, yet it is a task that is paramount to the performance of the saw.  A good quality saw that is correctly sharpened produces effortless, accurate joints.  This course is both a practical demonstration and an explanation of the fundamental processes in saw sharpening; it covers the following elements:

  • Jointing
  • Spacing
  • Forming
  • Setting
  • Sharpening
  • Test
  • Correction
