    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...
