Thread: Re-setting Teeth on David Stretton breast bone saw?

    Re-setting Teeth on David Stretton breast bone saw?

    My DS breast bone saw is getting a bit blunt and is not like it used to be, does any one know or has anyone tried filing and or re-setting the teeth with a saw set tool?

    thanks

    No. But for the sake of 20 I might just buy a new one. You'd need tools of the right pitch etc.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I'm a joiner by trade if you can put more set on the teeth it will help a great deal you may not then need to sharpen it or if you do just a light touch with a file.

    What do you mean by set? Do you mean more angle?So bend one more to the left and the next to the right?

    If you have never set and sharpened a saw blade before and are going to teach yourself, spend the 20 and buy a new blade tat way you will retain your sanity,

    You can buy a special tool to set the teeth it just bends them very slightly left and right but as JAYB says probably cheaper to buy a new one !
