    Paul,

    thanks for your informative response.

    I saw your ute saw post at the time but, read over it gain to refresh the information.

    Looking a the freshly filed teeth, they appear not to be produced from a regular 60 degrees saw file.

    They look like the teeth on a Disston #120 Acme no set saw.

    If they are not an optical illusion, what type of file did you use?

    Was it a cant saw fie? or one of those flat diamond shaped files?

    Graham.

    I can't speak to the Stanley boxes as to precision, because I have a Millers-Falls Langdon Acme box; but with that, on softwood, I can trim a saw-kerf's width of wood from moderately sized pieces.

    It must be an optical illusion: Just standard 60° saw files. The sloped gullets do tend to make the teeth look taller than we are used to.

    Bill Houghton asked for some pix, I presume of the sloped gullets.

    These are taken from the thread I linked on the docking saw, which had 4½ppi. It is easier to see the principle with the large teeth:

    I will be doing some more dental work on the mitre saw so I will probably put up some more pix as I go. Work dictates are getting in the way for the moment.

    Regards

    Actually, Bill Houghton inadvertently hit the wrong button and didn't know how to withdraw the request; but thanks for posting nice clear pictures of a nice sharpening job.

    No problem. In fact I thought that might be the case as I have done it myself. At work we call it the "fat finger syndrome," but I did not wish to appear rude suggesting such a scenario.
