Eric, that is very very nice.
But I have to ask where in the world did those plans came from, any chance of a copy.

Nice handle! I have a 10 in crown saw and planning to replace the handle using the same handle pattern as you did. One thing that worries me is cutting and punching holes in the saw plate. How did you punch the holes?

That was a tricky part. I used my drill press and if I had been thinking I would have started small and just worked up to the size but I went all out in one go. Ended up cooking the backing board I had under it and the holes were less then flush to the saw. Took quite a bit of “convincing” and reaming to get them flat with the blade again.

My advice is to go slow and start small and use copious amounts of lubricant to keep the bit cool.
