If you don't
have access to a retoothing machine, Saw Tooth templates are a
useful reference item to have in your saw building tool kit.
Saw tooth Templates are used when you want to change the pitch of
the teeth on a saw plate or want to start a new one from scratch.
For older saws with existing teeth, you need to file the existing
teeth down to the point where the tooth line is smooth and clean.
Once that is done the appropriate template is clamped along side
the saw plate in a saw vise. Allow the teeth of the template to
extend over the top of the saw plate by about 1/2 their height and
use them as a guide to file each new tooth into the saw plate.
Once the spacing is established remove the template and finish
forming the teeth. Since the
teeth are machine punched, they are evenly and accurately spaced
NOTE: While the photos
below shows the older doubles sided version, we have since
switched to single side templates with (1) pitch punched into
They are made from 2" x 18" 1095 Spring
Steel and each
pitch is clearly marked with a number.
The teeth are set to a 30 deg rake angle to make it easier for the
user to "index" on each tooth.
