I made this jeweler’s saw because for many projects I needed to cut steel in complex shapes and had no way to do it except outsourcing it to a CNC.

This saw can cut used table saw blades, my material of choice when making knives and other small tools. Which is more than enough for me. The fact that it does it quietly and that it’s such a small simple tool is a bonus in my tiny home workshop.

VIDEO of how I made it here:

Thank you all! Happy you liked the video since that is the part I’m not very experienced: filming and editing.
