Here are some links to websites selling saws, or folks offering sharpening services, links to publications, etc.

sharpcrosscut.com - Dolly Chapman's website. She's one of the best filers around and exclusive importer of the Tuatahi lance tooth saws.
jimscrosscutsaws.com - Jim Talburt's site. He's another filer and puts together really good western-style handles of vintage and new parts. He also sells vintage saws.
wkfinetools.com - A british website devoted to collecting vintage tools. Has links to a number of old publications on sharpening and manufacturing tools.
theaxehole.com - Doc Jastad and Larry Harris's site. They sell vintage logging and filing tools as well as a few tools (like a long jointer) that they manufacture themselves.
http://theaxehole.com/the_axe_hole_may_2010_012.htm - Page on the axehole site with links to many of the Forest Service publications about saws as well as other information.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrYsFlx3 ... ture=email - The link to Dan Dueweke's youtube video showing how he files saws.
jonzimmersantiquetools.com - Good source for vintage filing tools.
hanchett.com - Source for modern straight edges and crosspeen hammers.
crosscutsaw.com - The Curtis Saw Company's website. I can't recommend their products.
tuatahiaxes.com - The New Zealand company that manufactures competition saws and axes.
ebay.com- Enough said.
highlandwoodworking.com - A source for Gransfors Bruks, Iltis Oxhead, and Snow and Nealley axes.
http://www.fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsint ... st-%20Home - The website for Ninemile Wildlands Training Center near Missoula Montana. In April, they offer classes with Warren Miller, author of the USFS's Crosscut Saw Manual.
http://www.fs.fed.us/eng/techdev/mtdc.htm - The website for the Missoula Technology and Development Center. They offer a number of free publications about filing and using crosscut saws.
yesteryearstools.com - A source of company profiles on old axe manufacturers.

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.
