    So…I received a Veritas dovetail saw and carcass saw, both filled rip cut, and some saw files for Christmas.  Then I purchased a Superior 88 panel saw off of eBay.  These are the first saw that I have owned that can be sharpened.  I then sat and watched Paul’s saw sharpening video several times and then several times more.  After the video I wen’t out to the shop to have a go at the carcass saw.  Without a saw vise a tried the scrap of wood with a slit in it.  That worked but was very hard on my back.  So back to the video I went.  Then I searched Paul’s blog and found his entry about his saw vise.  Sat down at the computer and came up with my own plan.  How hard could it be?  Three weeks later and this is what I have.  The execution is not perfect but the function is.  This should last me a lifetime and hopefully be passed on.

    Wow Gregory. The plan is also very nice.  Thanks for that. You must be an engineer…

    Was the Veritas carcass saw not sharp out of the box, or were you recutting it to be x-cut?

    The Veritas saws were very sharp but too aggresive for all around use.  Sharpened them to Paul’s progressive rip pattern.  This makes them easy to start and able to rip and crosscut.  A dramatic difference.
