MAINTENANCE TOOLS FOR CROSS-CUT SAWS

The following maintenance tools are necessary for peg-tooth type saws:

(1a) Millsaw file (single cut)
(1b) Jointer, commercial or self-made using a worn file
(1c) Angle gauge
(1d) Filing grid
(1e) Setting iron
(1f) Setting indicator, commercial or self-made
(1g) Whetstone
(1h) Filing vice

(The self-made setting indicator consists of a piece of wood with three metal pins of the same length in a fixed position and an adjustable screw-type pin.)

For raker-tooth type saws, the same maintenance tools are needed, except for the following differences:

- a raker adjuster (or a combined raker adjuster and shaper) (2a) is necessary; and

- a setting hammer (2b) and a setting anvil (2c) replace the setting iron.
