I am looking for a saw set for my crosscut saw. Many I have seen seem to be intended for a given TPI range and the lowest I have seen is 4 TPI. Where would Champion tooth fall on the TPI scale and which saw set would be best?

When you go larger tooth then 4TPI you usually want to use hammer and anvil.

You can use a saw wrest too. I have a Stanley 43 saw set that says it is designed for crosscut saws and two man saws having 5 or less teeth per inch. I’ve never used it though.

In the videos posted in your other thread it shows how to do the hammer and anvil method I believe.

Thanks Tim. I’ll look into the 43.

The only grip set I have ever used on a crosscut saw is this one, demonstrated by Jim Thode on

It’s a beast and ones like it pop up on Ebay from time to time.
