Sorry Loren, but I’m not clicking on a link that has no text or description to go with it.

I know people like to share links and info. I struggle with posts, blogs and projects that have very little info and just a link. It would be great to at least give some idea what this is about.

I agree, I won’t click on a bare link from someone I don’t know. A description is always good.

It is pretty interesting. The guy basically makes a hacksaw frame out of wood and attaches a strip of sandpaper with a leather strip backing to use for sanding curves and things. There are few things he used it for that I wouldn’t use a spokeshave or something else but I can see a simpler version being useful.

I wouldn’t have bothered threading the connection to the handle but that does make it store in a smaller space.

I think he did a great job and it’s a quality tool when done, but as for me, I’ll grab a Radum orbital sander.
