Fig 55 Position Of Filer For Fitting A Ripsaw

The right hand holds the handle end of the file firmly, and the point of the file is held lightly between the thumb and index finger of the left hand, with the palm of the left hand up or toward the saw. Every other tooth is filed from one side of the saw; then the saw is placed in the clamp end for end, and the rest of the teeth are filed from the other side of the saw in the same way. At each stroke, the file is to cut the back of the tooth that projects away from the filer and the front of the adjoining tooth. If the teeth are uneven, they should be gradually equalized in size by pressing the file against the larger tooth.
