I hope you are not looking to get a lot of money with that stuff. Handsaw sharpening is not done anymore. Professional sharpeners won’t waste time on a hand saw. There just isn’t any market for sharpening. I have a complete shop full of saw sharpening machines that I no longer use. The only saw blades I use these days and what everyone else is using is the carbide tipped blade. So many of these blades are so inexpensive that it is not economical to resharpen them. The carbide tipped circular saw blade is the only blade worth sharpening when they are are the expensive brand, like Forrest. A typical sharpening is around $25, but more if teeth have to be replaced. If many teeth need replacement, the blade becomes uneconomical to sharpen. I didn’t see any carbide sharpening machines in your video, the only machines that would be worth anything. The rest of your machines might be of interest to someone who wants to try sharpening their own blades, but of no real market value. Of all the machines I own, I have a carbide sharpening machine and that is what I use for my own blades and to sharpen friends blades. Some of those old machines are interesting; especially the Stand-All.
