I have been quite busy lately making saws among other things. Two of these saws are going to BigRedKnothead and one of them went to JordanP
The panel saw is a 24 inch 8 ppi crosscut saw with a padauk handle modeled after a Disston No. 7. The plate is .032in 1095 spring steel.
After that is the 14 inch tenon/carcass saw. 11 ppi filed rip. Brass back and a .020 spring steel plate.
Finally there is the 12 inch tenon/carcass saw, also 11 ppi and filed rip, same plate thickness and brass back.
I have made a lot of improvements since my first saw, most notably a new method for removing the blueing of the steel, better sawnut production, a standardized handle template, and slightly better filing. I still have a lot of work to do but I am starting to be able to batch these saws out. Stay tuned for more details coming soon. -Chris
