I have read your saw swap from the first line but i had no time to join, but the project was not out of my mind. A few days ago i found enough shop time to start the project. Everything is made by hand, I folded the back ( first i had to weld a break). Made the screws from brass carriage bolts and the split nuts from a brass rod. The handle is made from bubinga. The blade was a good older one witch i had lying around but i retoothed it from 10 to 12 tpi. and it´s sharpend rip cut. Also I had to make a split nut driver witch fits perfect in the slots from the nuts. The handle is mahogany because i had not a thicker piece of a matching wood and the ferule is a thicker brass tube witch i filed in shape on the lathe. Next i will try to etch my logo into the blade, but i am not satisfied with my drawings. What do you think, every advice is wellcome.
