Very helpful Review by Jimendo

I'm pretty serious about learning how to sharpen my handsaws.. Short of being in the same room with Ron I haven't found anything as useful. The camera work in this video does a good job showing what Ron is doing. While I need more practice I am getting the hang of it. Well worth the money and time spent.

Sharpen Your Handsaws Review by Joe Alpeza

Thank you, Ron!After watching the video a time or two I was able to adjust the set of two saws which always seemed to veer off to the right of any line I was trying to cut. I also sharpened and set a Disston saw that I bought at a yard sale for $2. Without the video and instruction I could not have done that. I recommend this video to anyone intersted in sharpening their saws.
