Quite an interesting machine. It looks overly complicated. Looks like it sharpens hand saw blades only and sharpens by a grinding wheel. the Foley handsaw sharpener uses files to sharpen and can do circular saw blades and bandsaw blades. I still have the Foley saw filer that is gathering rust. if I had to sharpen a handsaw, I would do it by hand. Machines do a good job, but they take a lot of setup to get it right. I m not talking about the new modern computerized machines. As far as I know, modern saw sharpeners won t do handsaws (not cost effective) and the machines are set to sharpen carbide blades.

It will cut and sharpen the teeth in one swipe. It’s super fast. And now it currently resides in Washington State making beautiful custom handsaws again by Bearkat Woodworks.
