Thanks John...downloaded and saved...great stuff...will be good reading over this long winter season.



This only proves that these guys had their "stuff" together! What a wealth of information all in one place. This should be required reading for every young person learning to use tools. I wish that I had read this when I was a youngun. It would have accelerated my learning curve tremendously.


I have seen excerpts from this over the years but never the whole pamphlet. This is really a great primer for anyone learning the basics of handsaw use(s) and how to maintain them. It, also, illustrates some things that most of us have gotten away from using/doing. I have always, said, that I can do a typical operation with a hand tool quicker then getting out, setting up, and using a corded tool. 


By the time I set up the corded tool, I'm done with the hand tool and have moved on...


Thanks, John

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
