Ease of operation with an ordinary saw is defined by two characteristics to which you can influence.
This divorce and sharpening saw teeth.
Typically, saws already sold fully prepared to work, but in the process of tool wear and sometimes deformed.
Let's start with the separation of teeth. Turn saw self reverse end oppositelocation handles, and bring to eye level. We prepared the tool seen qualitatively that the teeth are bent slightly towards one through. The width of the "track" for different material is different. If the blade is used to wet the wood, the width of the groove should be 0.25-0.5 saw blade thickness. Dry wood can be 2 and thickness of the web. Adjusted diluted teeth special "razvodilkoy" - an iron plate with transverse slots under the teeth.
Sharpening the saw teeth as unpretentious. Secure saw on anything else, for your convenience. Many carpenters use for this purpose the back benches. Saws can be sharpened small triangular file.
Universal handsaw designed forlongitudinal cutting of wood, and transverse, has teeth shaped like isosceles triangles, and the teeth are sharpened on both sides of the "triangle". The bevel must be located on the inner side of the tooth, according to the wiring. Files located at an angle of 60-70 degrees with respect to the web.
Longitudinal saws, designed for cuttingalong the wood fibers have teeth bit "feathered" in the direction from the handle to the toe and sharpened only on one side, opposite the handle. This file is located at an angle of 45 degrees. Saws with a more complex configuration of the teeth are sharpened as universal, at an angle of 60-70 degrees. Look closely at how this drink was imprisoned and just correct sharpening.
