FILING

Filing is necessary if the teeth on the saw are not properly filed. This is usually needed with older saws that have been improperly sharpened or maintained in the past. This requires filing the teeth prior to sharpening to ensure proper tooth geometry. Filing includes jointing, evening the gullet depth, ensuring correct rake angle, tooth size and spacing. This charge is additional to sharpening.

Backsaws (under 18"): $25-100

Handsaws and miter saws: $50-135

RE-TOOTHING

For saws that need completely new teeth filed. This process is done by hand and includes jointing down to the gullets and then shaping the new teeth. . If you have a low broken tooth the re-toothing charge could apply instead of filing.
