I’ve been doing a lot of re sawing lately, and when my Brother-in-law told me that a huge bandsaw blade snapped at his work and he brought it home, I told him I’d like to build a frame saw. He said “what the heck is that”, so I showed him some pictures and he fabricated the parts for me. I came into some wood recently, from my uncles father in law. The saw blade is about 40” long and 8ppi. It was originally used to cut steel, so it took quite a while to re sharpen, and set. but it was worth it. It cuts about as fast as my 5ppi panel saw, but it uses more legs and back to cut than just arms. There are just mortises holing the arms into the rails, and the handles are turned on the lathe, and at shoulder with apart. It’s really comfortable and fun to use.
