Been tidying up my saw filing stuff with a view to Philly's UK Workshop bash next month. Still not entirely sure how the whole saw sharpening thing has happened, but if I make it look difficult enough maybe I might get some saw doctoring work? (Plot plot...) Much to my delight I found unused files in 5" and 6" in double extra slim which I'd completely overloooked, so already it's paying dividends. And yes, I get delighted easily... Anyway, all good, organising stuff that I'll reap the benefits of, but tedious in the extreme. Cast a speculative glance at the lathe to see if it was accessible, but a big hole in the wall right above the headstock suggests "no", so I left the Old Man to continue his destruction and tip-toed away. Shame, 'cos I could do with a couple of file handles - but they can wait.
Ah, just got a reply to my prod of Mike at Classic Hand Tools about the saw files. Hmm, "still working on it". Glad I wrapped up my poor 4" double extra slims carefully then. Or what remains of them.
So yeah, it's all go chez Alf, she lied.
