Danish frame saw restored
actually not a lot…
Today I passed a flea market, and it was all old clothes, but when I was leaving I spotted this old saw and asked the guy what he wanted for it – 5 dollar was the answer, and I just said top, no fighting about this price…
So half an hour of restore and I have a fine saw, the blade was even sharp and ready to use.
1. A Danish frame saw (yes I call this type a frame saw).
2. The saw came with a broken string and a missing tigthener.
3. So new string and a piece of wood.
4. Cutting, why not as a fish.
5. Shaping it on my supersander.
6. Linseed oil and wax.
Update June 2012.
Look what I just got for 50$, with different blades all from fine cross cut to rough rip – wauuu I’m happy.
Hope it can be to some inspiration,
