I found a nice little coping saw at the Habitat today. Put a new blade into it, and tried it out on a bit of plywood. Failed utterly. I don’t know what I’ am doing with this tool. I’ll read up on it.

Ran into the head of the maintenance staff while I was walking my dog this morning. I asked what the current waterproofing is, so that I would know how to deal with it when I re-do the wall. He told me that they use dryloc, and that if I want it re-waterproofed I can ring him and he’ll send a guy to do it for me. I love this place. I’ll set that up for next week.

Niice find Anna
the copingsaw is a great little saw to form small/medium sized thin pieces with
just remmeber to have the teeth pointing against the handle
and when you saw it is straight up and down motion of the sawblade

and if you make a board with a big V cut out in the end
clamped down with one or two clamps you have a great jiig to saw things
the wings of the V – shaped cut will be on both sides of the cut and support thin pieces

hope my point come thrugh despite my bad english

good luck with the saw
