It’ll be interesting to see how often you use the sharpener after the first time. I bought a blade sharpener a few years back and used it twice. Realized I was too cheap to buy an expensive blade and too lazy to sharpen the cheaper ones.

Was looking at your cart for your Bosch miter saw. I really need to do that for mine. Been putting it off for years. Mine is already on a cart but it needs wings. Did you use plans from somewhere??

-Andy…. naw. I built from scratch. Was just trying to combine 3 useful woodworking areas into 1. Eventually got rid of it (almost all mobile stations have been removed) due to getting an additional cabinet saw.
For the Foley filer…I’ve seen the youtube video of it in action. If I only had 2 or 3 handsaws, I wouldn’t have bothered. But I have 15’ish to rehab and sharpen eventually.

The 357 filer will sharpen only non carbide blades.

Ron…Luckily, all my handsaws are non carbide :)
However, the guy did have another Foley machine for carbide sharpener. I did pass on that one.
