This FAQ is a thread for anyone to post anything relevent to handsaws and hand sawing techniques.

This first round is for Western style handsaws. I'll leave Japanese style saws for other folks to cover.

Please do not post questions to this thread. Please do post questions to a new thread.

My hope is this thread becomes a place to look up and get information.

Thanks!

Jim

Some good websites:

VintageSaws.com: http://www.vintagesaws.com/
I'd start here. Its hard to beat the vast amounts of info on western handsaws on this site. They also have very detailed articles on sharpening.

Disstonian Institue: http://www.disstonianinstitute.com/
If you want to know anything about Disston saws or handsaws in general, can't go wrong starting hiere.

Backsaw.net
More boatloads of information on Backsaws. Includes some great pics, techniques for making saws and much, much more.

Thanks,
Jim

Chris Schwarz Woodworking Magazine Blog entries dealing with saws:

Adam Cherubini: 18th Century woodworker who makes and sells 18th century style saws. His write ups are very infomative and constract what we think of as the Disston saws from the 20th century.
