Saw blade protection DIY
Protecting the teeth…
A little update for your saws on the road!
Many saws comes with a little plastic tooth protection, if you don’t have this, you can buy something close to this in the paper shop, since you can buy these plastic backs for projects, and use these.
I updated this plastic thing, both for strengths, and for beauty.
Simply cut a piece of Mahogany in size, made a rabbet that fit the plastic protection, then glue it in place with epoxy, and use a rubber O ring to hold it in place.
The last picture is our friend Napoleon using my new saw! Hmmmm, it was him that sponsored the wood, so I better let him!
You can read the Three LJ’s five saws test, where this saw are tested.
Here a link to another protection guard I made in a more vintage style:
Hope this can save the life’s of some saws,
Best thoughts, and open smile,
