It is beautiful. Did you buy a hardware kit from someone or make your own? You have a pretty fancy tightener. This is high on my list to do.

Thanks. I am a Grammar (High) School teacher. This is a project I am leading for year 10 students. I want to show them a variety of workshop skills. The metal parts are all made from scratch.. The saw has a 3 1/2” throat, but the blade can be rotated to give clearance. The saw is heavy and cuts really well, taking standard coping saw blades. The cam and curved brass washer works really well and a high tension can be achieved. I made a similar cam lock for my archery bow stand.

beautyfull little framesaw :-)I´m more to using very thin robe for thighten up the framesaws instead of using a metal rod but I take my hat of for the biggest inovation that have happened to the framesaw concept the last two hundred years using quickrelease system on one is a genial idea :-)
thank for sharing the idea of it ….... one of those why didn´t I think of that
having a bycircle with quickrelease on both wheels , the sadlepind and under the stear
take care Dennis
