A U.S. Forest Service Publication – by Warren Miller
Many consider this manual the “bible” to crosscut saw filers and users. First published in 1978, it is probably the only crosscut saw manual ever compiled.
This sole source on saw use and maintenance also has an interesting introduction dealing with the history of crosscut saws, along with detailed drawings and descriptions on how a crosscut saw works. Includes plans for a saw vise that can be inexpensively constructed, as well as an in-depth look at the use of filing tools, complete with illustrations. This one-and-only 24 page manual should be in every filer's shop.
