    Good afternoon ,
    After three or four sharpening its time to topping saw teeth line. I usually look at the flats on top of each and file according to It. So its a time consuming (and a saw plate consuming work, too).
    So, instead of filing the White teeth line does It exist a method to detect the higher teeth other than the use of a flat file?

    Jointing is to level the high and low teeth so the first pass may only hit a few teeth. Once the majority of the teeth are being touched by the jointing file you can stop.

    I don’t know of another way of identifying the high teeth.

    By the way, the excessive plate consumption is from overfiling the lower teeth, not correcting the high teeth. The high teeth have not been sharpened as much over time, which is why they are high.
