There are many Youtube videos on crosscut saw filing. Should be the same process.

I learned from an old timer, very similar to sharpening the two man crosscut saws. Lots of info for those out there!

Follow the steps for the two man saws and it'll get you close enough to cut wood!

I watched a lot of the sharpening videos on Youtube. It seems there are a lot of specialized tools involved. I just don't want to screw it up.
Thank you for your help.

I have several types of drag saws and while we was at a lumberjack show and was inquiring about having mine sharpened and it was recommended to get wood that it would saw because itís for demonstration only and if itís to sharp you will saw through the wood to quickly jmo

I purchased some specialist tools from a bloke in Oregon for sharpening my drag saw - Jon Zimmers Antique Tools. He has an interesting web site, and was very good to deal with.
