I got a $5.00 saw from an antique store, and sharpened it myself.
Used 2 boards to make small file marks to keep the angle the same,
tried to duplicate the bevel, etc. It worked! But I then took it to
Rockler, where they sharpened it for about $12.00 and a couple of
weeks. Conclusion: The professional can do a better job than me. But
I would consider touching it up a tad, once or twice, before I take it
And I ended up with an experienced looking saw for $17.00, that is
useful. That is cool.
