Chaps

I need to sharpen a Ryoba the crosscut side, so where is the best place for feather files? my google foo seems to be weak.

Matthew has them at Workshop Heaven - there must be something else there you need to order!

Thanks Andy.

I did see that one but it looks a bit big, do you or any one know of any others?

I have never done a Japanese saw before so I am not conversant with the files apart from knowing the name of them.

Aren't the teeth hardened? If so you will need a diamond file.

I have an assortment of needle files which includes one of similar shape to the one at WH and a single knife profile which might be suitable of the teeth are very small.
One is marked Stubs and the other is from the Portuguese firm that's been discussed favourably on here:

This. The japanese files are as hard or slightly harder than western saw files, but no match for impulse hardened teeth. The same shaped diamond files can be bought about as cheaply as a feather file.

Thanks chaps.

I will have a dig around Dictum etc.

A needle file won't work as the gullet angle isn't 60deg, the teeth aren't hardened so sharpening is possible, and I fancy giving it a go.

Needle files come in a huge variety of shapes and angles - at least, they did when I bought mine. 'Knife' should still be a standard profile at about 10°.
