Bow Saw Build #2: Cuttin' and Fittin'

08-25-2017 12:42 PM by HokieKen | 6 comments »

I did most of this before I started taking pictures so the pics are a little sparse. But, I think the process is fairly easy to follow. First thing I did was to make my two 5/8×1/4 mortises in the vertical frame pieces. I hogged the bulk out on the drill press then cleaned them up with a chisel. The mortises are 3/8” deep… (this will be important later!) On a side note, I’ve been using the hell out of my Gramercy holdfasts on my new bench. I don’t know h...

Bow Saw Build #1: Getting Started

08-24-2017 11:57 AM by HokieKen | 13 comments »

Well, my buddy Bill (builtinbkyn) recently made a couple of turning saws and I knew I had to have one. So when my Mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday earlier this month, I told her I’d like one of the Gramercy bow saw kits from Tools for Working Wood. For $29 you get 3 blades and the brass pins needed. You can buy various other parts as well but, where’s the fun in that? ;-) So, I started with that and off I go… First I chose my woods and milled my blanks...

Gramercy tools bow saw kit / new tool, christmas present

02-13-2014 07:19 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi! the first project I’d like to share with all yall this year is this bow saw I made. I was given a bow saw kit from Gramercy tools. Knobs, brass blade holders, 3 – 12 ” saw blades. They have the plans for free on their website…. however, like many of us, I can’t just go with someone else’s standard or ordinary set up. So I did a google search for bowsaw, and selected “IMAGES FOR *” and got thousands (well maybe only a hundred or so) of...

Building the Gramercy Carcass Saw Kit #1: The Build

12-05-2011 04:03 AM by doorslammer | 5 comments »

I recently purchased the Gramercy Carcass saw kit to add a nice crosscut saw to my till and if Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill prefer it I thought I’d give it a try, but at $200 it’s a bit pricey. The kit however is a little more than half that and all that’s left to do is attach the brass spine and shape a handle. The kit comes with the saw plate sharp and ready to go, a bent brass back, a pair of split nut saw bolts and instructions with a scaled handle pattern. I chose...

A bow saw project #2: Step 2: Redo step number 1

08-31-2008 01:04 AM by Texasgaloot | 1 comment »

Sort of. Well, I went ahead and ordered the pin-handle-sawblade kit from Gramercy. I put the order in on Wednesday, the stuff was in my mailbox on Friday, and it came through via priority mail because I’m too cheap to have it overnighted. Now, I don’t care who you are, that’s fast. I didn’t need the overnight service. The pins are a nicely turned brass, and I epoxied them into the handles today. Until I have my lathe built, I’m going to call that one go...
