A saw-set is an “instrument used to wrest or turn the teeth of saws alternately to the right left so that they may make a kerf somewhat wider than the thickness of the blade. Also called saw-wrest. b. anvil used for setting saws in saw-factories, the setting being performed by blows of the peculiarly shaped hammer; a. Every second tooth is set in one direction, and, the saw-blade being turned over, the intervening teeth are set in the reverse direction; c and d are notched levers by which in ordinary setting the alternate teeth are set in opposite directions.” —Whitney, 1889
