HOW TO FILE AND SET A HAND-SAW
The following instruction-, although Boms,
what wearisome, perhaps, to the mechanic rnsv
be of practical use to some of our readers wh
are removed from saw -sharpening facilities0
When a saw is in bad order, the teeth are irret'
ular in length and pitch. This occurs thread,
improper filing, and results in the saw workuie
hard. The reason is that a saw irregularly fiw
01 act., cute ouiy wun uie longest teeth and
those that have the most set. To remedy these
defects, it should be pointed and filed until the
teeth are all of even length, and are pitched
so that the front of each tooth is at right angle,
with the back of the saw. The saw is faatentd
into a clamp, which consists of a pair of j.wi
fixed upon a stand, and moved by screws. The
ends of the teeth are brought to a level by run.
ning a flat file lengthwise of the blade. Ths
best form to give the edge is a slight curve from
end to end of the saw, making the middle
slightly rounding outward, never hollow.
The handle of the saw when in ti... -
should be to the left, and not be changed during
the filing. The part held in the clamp should
be tiled completely before being moved, if the
