Tips from A Shipwright – Sharpening a Ship’s Saw

Thanks again to FishHawk Films and Louis Sauzedde for this latest great film from Tips from a Shipwright. Here Lou shows us his 42-inch L. Power Ship Saw and gives us a demonstration of his sharpening technique. Never a “dull” moment with Lou! Enjoy!

  1. Very informative. I do not recognize the type of file he is using to file the teeth. Can someone provide that information?

    • Looks like a 2″ x 6″ diamond hone mounted on a shop-made handle?

      These are available from a number of tools suppliers in various grits for about $20.

  2. Thanks for this. We do fine metal restoration and use a small band saw for building jigs and various custom work and often want to sharpen the blade without going through the whole replacement process.

  3. I just watched Lou sharpen a blade–THIS GUY IS A AMERICAN TREASURE ! THE BOAT IN THE BACKGROUND/ TIME TAKEN TO SHARPEN AND MAINTAIN THE BANDSAW – wow !!
    ALL OF THIS VIDEO IS AMERICANA AT IT’S BEST AND AS IT SHOULD BE!!!!!!!
