Frank,
I will certainly look into it and send you whatever we have in our files. Due to travel and vacation, I probably won't be back in the office before the first of the year ....If you need some help before then, I would suggest calling John (Rusty) Dramm of our lab. You can reach him at (608) 231-9200. Rusty is probably the most knowledgeable person we have regarding the sawmilling industry. Let me know if you run into a dead end and I will try to do some more digging for you. Cheers, Bob

I have a series of books called Audels Carpenters and Builders Guides, that go into saw maintenance in detail. Apparently they didn't just want you to know how to nail up a few boards, they wanted you to know how to saw them out as well. :D I'll dig them out tonight and see which book has the saw sharpening in it. If I forget, PM me and get me off my chair. ;)
