Daggett "Machine for Sharpening Handsaws"

This is a very different hand saw grinder, patented by Byron G. Daggett, in use at a saw shop in Oregon. It uses an abrasive wheel and does both bevels in one pass. It's amazing to watch.

  1. I have one. The only problem is that it sometimes burns the tips of the saw, which break off when you use it.
