I have a bunch of broken industrial band saw blades about 2 and a half inches wide that I saved to make knife blanks———but I want to make a single blade kinda like a scroll saw but using the wheel and a lever to go
up and down like a piston and rod to a crank shaft. Anybody have any pictures of such a saw?
I’ve seen then but I don’t know what you call them or how to build one.
I need help with this build. Thanks guys.

Thanks Loren but I was looking for more like a powered vertical powered bow saw.

Have your say...
