I used a 5 inch 2xslim I think it was. Double the height. Anyway I got it sharp or sharp enough to cut anyways lol. I need more practice but it cuts. Do I need to tilt the file forward any for a rip cut? I kept it all level.
It does cut BUT…. as Ronald said for his, it binds. It’ll cut great until I guess it’s deep enough to get pinched.
I also sharpened my two back saws. Small one for dovetails and the bigger is called a tenon saw? The dovetail saw cuts beautifully, but the tenon one binds some too. I’m cutting red oak. Before I would just mess around on pine but I have my first real project underway.
Anyways, the veritas dovetail saw had some online info on maintenance and they said they use the 42x sawset. After some searching I found it was desirable so I got one with new springs.
Back to my saw, I understand how the set works but how much do you set the teeth? On what mark do I need to set my sawset?
