On shielding

 I touched up the Shirai Sangyo Dozuki I have (from fine-tools, germany). It's not a great saw, and it was the first non disposable I got. I was stupid and used it for cutting some ugly construction wood and broke like 10 teeth off. Lately I've been trying to repair it. Today I tried the shield on it to touch up the top facet.

Anyway, this is the surface it leaves on some apple. 

Not bad if I may say so myself. Directly from the saw. It feels awesomely smooth.

Here a picture of the shield in use.

So you know now: if you go to war, don't forget your shield. The end grain will thank you.
