Serving the dual purposes of topping off the teeth of a hand saw prior to re-sharpening, and providing an accurate guide for filing the edges of cabinet scrapers. A file with a maximum thickness of 4.7mm, typically a 150mm second cut hand file, is clamped into the guide and run across the saw teeth or the scraper to produce an even and square result. The 45° guide face enables other scraper blades to be sharpened. Another use for this versatile tool is for keeping your ski edges nice and sharp; how versatile can you get?

useful little toolThis is a useful little tool for those who must keep cabinet scrapers and traditional (non hatd-point) saws in working condition. It is by no means indispensible - you could easily make a tool yourself to do the job, - at for the price it is hardly worth the effort, and of course the look and quality of the Veritas tool adds to the pleasure of using it.
