267632 "Adam R. Maxwell via OldTools" <oldtools@s...> 2019‑01‑12 Next best to Stanley 42X

A friend of mine needs to sharpen a Lie-Nielsen dovetail 
saw, and he wants to try it himself rather then send it 
out again. He says it's binding, and may not have been 
set last time it was sharpened, so it needs more than 
just a quick touch with a file.

I don't see a Stanley 42X for sale on fleabay. Is the 
regular 42 a good alternative? I have a couple of 
Stearns sets that I dislike for anything finer than 
11 pt, and I recall being pretty impressed with how 
much better the Stanley was on tiny teeth.
