Napoleon,

My personal saws are actually old saws that I have restored and either sharpened myself or have had someone sharpen them. As far as manufacturers that I think are very impressive and are getting good reviews, I would say it’s well worth taking a look at www.wenzloffandsons.com (excellent customer service and it looks like a good product). I contacted them looking for parts to restore an old user Disston saw that I have. Mike Wenzloff (owner) himself actually answered the phone and was very helpful. He is very knowledgeable and will custom tayor a saw to your specifications or, if you tell him the kind of work that you do, he will recommend how best to set up the saw for your purposes and then build you a saw accordingly. Mike also emailed me with a saw handle template that I was able to use in making a new handle for one of my saws. Another manufacture that you might look at is www.badaxetoolworks.com. Also, good customer service reputation and they have been written up several times on Chris Schwartz’s blog. I haven’t had any personal experience with them.

Hi Jim,

thank for for setting the link. Old Ladies is my personal blog. Our saws can be seen on

http://two-lawyers-toolworks.blogspot.com/

To give you an impression, Napoleon, this is a sash saw or little tenon saw.

Cheers
Pedder

Some nice stuff you got there Pedder,ill will look at it :) What is your best tenonsaw and why ?

Dennis you old man from Ærø :) You have seen my wall so you know there is no tenonsaw ;)

You are right, i can buy a DIY-kit but honestly´i dont feel for it. I can easy make the handle,by but making the blade i have no doubt that to forged one there are people who is much better than me to do that :)
