Learn to fettle a "Great American" or "peg tooth" saw of 3 feet and longer.
Whether you have a new saw (perhaps from Flinn Garlick, or Wilhelm Putsch) and wish to improve its performance, or have an old one you'd like to restore, this is the course for you.
I suggest we talk first and you send me pictures of your saw so we can make a better plan.
Whilst sharpening crosscut saws is quite simple, and I have run quite a few saw-fettling training events teaching virtually is a novelty. That's why the price is astonishing-friendly. My interest is in getting your saw(s) to work and not fattening my pocket.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
My time and attention. Fleam templates. A pre-course video call where I look at the tools you already have and you see the tools I use.
Files, a firm surface to fix scrap ply or plank to with at least 2 clamps, a hammer or saw-set & enthusiasm. And if you don't have suitable files or any other tools or even a saw, I can supply them. Best you send me pictures of your saw(s) and I can then advise what to do next.

Very informative workshop and well worth the price. Gavin is a great teacher and explains things nice and simply. I learned a lot.
Response from ShedTherapy:Yep - it is quite do-able to learn saw filing remotely. And it's fun for me too☺
Gavin is an excellent and passionate teacher who really knows what he is talking about.
Under his practical guidance, I was able to set & sharpen my blunt saw within a few hours.
Besides that, I gained a lot of new knowledge about wood & tools.
It was absolutely practical to take the course online, connecting one workshop to another via video.
Response from ShedTherapy:I am delighted to have hit the mark ☺!
