Re: DIY rip saw #3

By straight teeth I meant - and apologise I was not clear - that the tooth line is straight. This has a curved tooth line which I now know is less effective at ripping than a straight one.

Re: New Pit Saws

How did you find this saw in use? I bought one of theirs but sold it on because I had no pit.
The man who bought it found the saw very aggressive i.e. hungry and tiring for the sawyers.

Re: is shedtherapy.com online shop working?

Thanks Jim - and I will go with that i.e. £10 for as many non-tracked items as you like. That makes it simple for someone in US to buy files from me - your cost is only gonna be £10 whether one file or five files for un-tracked.

Is this a "slope angle" ?

I recently altered the profile on one of my vises a steeper filing angle. I can now file with file 30 degrees to saw vise and saw AND with teeth closer to the edge for easier filing. I think this is the 'slope angle'.
