Labelling my saws
Yeah, I know that you just sight down the teeth to tell -- but my eyes are old and weak, so I keep second-guessing myself.
My old way was that I'd write on the side of the sawblade with a permanent marker: either "RIP" or "X-C" for "cross-cut". But I didn't like the look -- and besides, after a while it would wear off.
But today I'm trying a new way: I bought five bucks of yarn -- a skein of red, and a skein of blue. "Red" is for "rip", and "cyan [blue]" is for "crosscut" (or just "not-red".
We'll see how it goes.
Yeah -- most of my saws are filed for "rip". I'll explain some other time. (And: these aren't all of my saws...) ;)
