Hey everyone, I’ve been pretty busy lately, but I got a little time in the shop and was able to build this saw. It has a brass back that I slotted on my schools horizontal mill, and a .020 1095(I think) springsteel plate. I made he nuts by hand using 9/16 brass bar stock. I got all of my materials from McMaster Carr just for reference. The handle is padauk made in classic 18th century style, my favorite of course.
I filed the saw 11ppi with 25 degrees of fleam and 15 degrees rake. The plate has about 3 inches of depth and is 14 inches long. I built this saw as part of a trade for a Stanley 45 from Don W. Thanks for reading!
