« Part 2: Rebuilding the box Part 3 of Millers Falls No. 1816 Mitre Box Rehab series no next part

Time to get the Olde Wentworth No.1 down off the the shelf…clean it up, and set it into the end vise…ready for work…

Had a 4” XXSlim file…needed a handle drove onto it…saves the hand, that way….

just 3 strokes, straight across, per tooth….work from back at the heel, all the way to the toe..

Most of the gullets were simply full of..crud…had to slide the saw back a bit…did not really take all that long.

Had done a test drive the day before…counted those strokes (10), set things up and try again..same 10 saw strokes…

Big difference…I think I can call this rehab…done?

Remember, this Mitre Box AND Saw cost a whopping $1….I might just get my money’s worth?

Thanks for looking in..!

Very nice, Bandit, but I think you might’ve overpaid. ;-P
