Redesigned Tools for Crosscut Saw Maintenance

Screen shot of the cover page for the report described in this article.

Crosscut saws and the tools to maintain them are hard to find. Crosscut saws can be beneficial in nonwilderness areas and should be used in wilderness areas where the 1964 Wilderness Act prohibits the use of motorized equipment. Working from traditional designs, MTDC built prototypes of eight tools used to maintain crosscut saws. The report, New Tools for Old Saws (0523–2815–MTDC), describes the basic functions of these tools. Mechanical drawings of the tools are included for those who wish to build their own or have a machinist build one for them.

For more information on crosscut saw maintenance, contact Bob Beckley, project leader (phone: 406–329–3996; e-mail:
