I have a saw that I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with it. It’s an older Craftsman (long C) 16″, 14 Points. Has a diamond mark and nothing else that I’ve not been able to ID. It has no set but binds up after about 1/4″, so I don’t think it’s intended to be a zero set saw. It’s been suggested that the blade may have been sanded, taking off any set.
So, I was thinking about sharpening it and see what it’s like. Looking at what’s left of the teeth they look filed straight across like a rip saw but they look pitched more like a crosscut saw.
So, is it a rip saw, a crosscut or something different?
