Frame Saw Build #6: stressed out... or not enough?

786 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

With the blade cut and drilled to length, and the frame shaped and finished (BLO) it was time to add some tension to the frame to pull on the blade. I was toying with some ideas, and ended up getting an IKEA steel wire hanger as the tension control. It’s quite simple, and uses 2 threaded ends one left hand one right hand, both pulling on the wire: Putting tension on the blade using this method is not as easy I was hoping it would be and requires a pin to roate and thread those...

Not a woodworking project, but interesting, I think. I made jigs for these also. One of the businesses I’m a partner in is a couple of Pizza Stores. My Brother in law (the one I made the table for) is my partner. He ordered a custom oven for a delivery truck that cost 3,000.00 When I saw it I told him I could build a nicer over than that, for less money. He told me I couldn’t build an oven. The one he bought would hold about five pizzas. It also had room for one propane tan...
