The second of the small crosscut saws that I have made.
Blade – Cabinet Scraper 60mm x 150mm 0.6mm thick
Handle – Jarrah
Bolts – Brass saw nuts purchased locally
Spine – Aluminium extrusion lying about.
Had the teeth cut at 14tpi at a local sharpening facility, the blade is held in place with aluminium packing strips jammed in the U shape extrusion, blade was drilled with vanadium drill bits (only thing that can cut spring steel). Handle was shaped with various rasps and sanded smooth.. Cuts effortlessly…
