This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in tool care.

Here is a video on how to sharpen a hand saw.



From the video description:
"Sharpening a cross cut saw is fairly simple and can be a lot of fun once you get the hang of it. you will need a triangular saw file and a standard flat file. To sharpen a crosscut saw start by jointing the teeth to bring them all down to the same level. keep the file at 90 degrees to the plate of the saw. Next use the saw File to cut in the teeth. I like to use 30 degrees but some like as little as 10."

To get certified for this BB, post the following:
