“Handsaws: Tune-up, Setup & More”

Handsaws: Tune-up, Setup & More,” by Ron Herman, picks up where “Sharpen Your Handsaws” left off. While knowing how to sharpen a saw is the first half of the battle to getting excellent results, knowing how to choose the proper saw to fit your body – and how to choose the proper saw for the job at hand – plus learning how to set it up for maximum performance, will have you wielding all your handsaws like a master.

Ron shows you: how eye dominance plays a part in making a straight cut; how your thrust-line affects the ease of saw use; how to set up and use traditional miter boxes; how to tension a handsaw; and more!
