Just a quick post for you guys out there with a lathe.
Since posting my saw sharpening video in Saw Talk #28, I’ve had a few enquiries about the saw file handles I use. I get them from an online retailer here in the UK and as far as I know they aren’t available anywhere else. That means that if you don’t live in the UK, shipping can be a bit prohibitive. So here are the dimensions (in millimetres I’m afraid) for anyone who is handy with a lathe. They are are a ‘one size fits all’ handle and are certainly the most comfortable file handles I’ve ever used. I’m sure someone could make a few bucks by knocking up a batch and posting them for sale on this blog. If you are interested in purchasing some, why not register your interest here too and hopefully there will be enough interest to convince someone to turn a batch.
Hope this helps.
