Thank PATCsawyer for this link with an outstanding video series of Warren Miller on the subject of crosscut saws:

http://vimeo.com/13313187

Be sure to look on the right side of that webpage to see many video segments of Warren (jointing, swaging, straightening, etc)

I have seen these before, but now I get:

I emailed Mr. Beckley, and he responded back saying that the videos will be available for distribution in about 1 to 2 months. Pretty excited to see those.
