Saw Filing

by Robert Grimshaw

Many have heard of the work by Grimshaw called "On Saws". Relatively scarce is this companion volume which tells the reader everything Grimshaw knows about filing saws.

This is the third edition of his work, copyrighted in 1912, although the original copyright is 1882. With 133 numbered pages, complete with index, this book is a fascinating record of saw filing technology at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Grimshaw covers virtually everything that you might be curious about for not only hand saws, but also circular mill saws, band saws, two man cross cut saws, meat saws and many others. Topics with detailed explanations include how to straighten blades, make a circular saw run true, polish a rusted blade using simple materials, select files, use files, fold a band saw blade for shipment just scratch the surface.

A mechanical engineer, Grimshaw wrote this book to inform and advise tradesmen of the day how to maintain their tools. Even if you never intend to pick up a file, there are a lot of topics which will interest and educate you. A great book which you will come back to again and again.

The original volume measures approximately 4" by 6" with a gold embossed cloth bound cover and is reproduced full size. A must for any serious saw filer!

Please note that this electronic book can not be printed and is not compatible with Macintosh Computers.
