Nicholson 5" file
Worked really well. A little bit large for my saw, as I had about 14 teeth per inch, but brought it up to spec. Saved me from buying a new saw though. Used a bit of cutting oil too, and that seemed to keep the file from clogging. Just had to check it now and then and wipe the filings out with a rag.
Cuts well but lost teeth quickly
I got this for cleaning up some of my dad's 80s vintage saws, they just needed some sharpening no heavy retoothing or anything. The file was dull after one saw. I won't be getting another Nicholson file, too bad Woodcraft doesn't carry a better brand.
