Saw sharpening project of the week: competition crosscut racing saw.

For our project of the week from the saw sharpening shop, this week we had:

This is a 5 1/2′ 2 man crosscut competition saw in an M-tooth pattern belonging to the Colby College Woodsmen’s Team. The saw came in badly worn and with almost no set (the set on this saw was originally created when the saw plate was ground). It’s now well set and razor sharp (I got my fingers bit several times 🙂 ).

I told them I want a plug if they win a meet with it!
