Hand saw wedge where you need it!
Living on the ‘w’edge [Aerosmith]
Not rocket science, just the good old saw wedge, but with a twist so you know where to find it!
Make yourself a little wedge, make it in a quite low angel, drill a hole in the back, ad a cord, and a little piece of string!
Viola! You can attach it to your saw handle, and you have it just where you want it.
If someone do not know the purpose of this little fellow; it’s to keep the spur open when you saw, so the saw blade will not get stuck.
You can read about this little tool all the way back to the tomb of Rekhmire in Egypt (Look under vice).
Here is one to listen while you make it:
Hope this can keep you from getting stocked, if not in life, then at least in the saw cuts,
Best thoughts, and open smile,
