A lot of the saw mills up here use like a huge band saw and I have seen him sharpen and set the teeth , but his tool was quite not that , way newer model .
I guess those big blades are super expensive so they do the work themselves.

Not so much the cost of the blade but the millwright time to take them on and off. It takes less dollars to sharpen them in place than it does dismount one, send it out for sharpening, and then remount it. Plus a good millwright can sharpen a blade pretty quickly, and if you do it a few times a day before it is really dull, it takes even less time to sharpen.

One of the first chores I learned was saw sharpening and setting the teeth.

One of my grandfathers owned a small shake mill. The other was a millwright and head sawyer at a small saw mill. My dad was a finish carpenter.

At this point my saw sharpening skills are as rusty as the tools in the photos.

What was the quote? "THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES"
