Because I wanted to test some ideas about teaching saw-smithing, I ran a pilot course in the same factory where the saw-smithing courses will run on Fri 27 July 2019. I invited David Baker, Will Wall and Barry Bate. Bully the Sawsmith showed us smithing and I practised how to structure the class.
I love the way he showed us to just sight along a saw to find any bends and kinks and then a quick tap (or ten) to set it right. This is far quicker than straight-edges.
He then tensioned the saw.
