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.

Re: Strange face on a saw hammer.

A sawsmith showed me similar hammer which he called a 'peck' hammer'. He used this to hit a hollowed area to raise it i.e. he did not have to turn the saw over. It did not quite make sense to me, but I saw him use it and it worked. You could try it on scrap metal and find out.

A sawsmith I have taken lessons from says: better with CONCAVE surface. His is concave... and in this pic here he demonstrates this. He smiths circular saws.

Re: American Pattern File?
