Let’s go to the second tool, the lever, and the plate.  Always choose a plate that perfectly forms the body of the tool.  As to the lever, see to it that is capable of bending the tooth to angle well.  If you’re not familiar with this, then I suggest that you choose something that is mostly used by that from woodworks company.  Surely, they are using good tools in their business.  Anyway, the simplest form of a lever saw set plate is made of metal.  Just make sure that the metal is thick enough.

Third and usually the most familiar tool is the pliers.  If you have a pliers with a small jaw, then it’s good.  It can be perfect for setting a tooth.  But there are also pliers which are specially designed for saw setting and contains built-in STOPPER.  The stopper is usually adjustable and rests against the saw blade when you bend the tooth.  It makes the set consistent and prevents it from breakage. There are also styles where the tooth can be gripped first in the jaws, easy to bend and align to the tooth.

Another type of saw set is the Two-Handled or known as the Pistol-Grip set.  This is actually the most commonly used saw set and is always perfect for saw maintenance.  Check on a pistol-grip set that is durable and has a good strength at clamping.

Finally, there are saw sets now in the market which are automated.  Saw enthusiasts find this automated saw sets convenient and easy to use.  If you are tired of setting your saw manually, then this type of setter is a good choice.  A lot of brands of automated saw set are in the market nowadays.  Just be wise in choosing them especially that it might cost a lot compared to the manually operated ones.
