Welcome to Lumber Jocks Saw Swap 2014.

All input and advice are welcome to make this a great experience.

We can make saw from kits, repurpose saws, make your own
from different suppliers, and basically have fun making a useful
saw for your shop.

Sign up, details to follow.

This is a skill building and sharing quest. You can post pictures anytime and if you’re in
an impasse or want to know how’s the best way to do something we’ll help
the best we can.

Fellow LJer’s may offer Kits and Parts or anything to help make a successful
saw swap. Send me an email so I can put you on the vendor’s list.

If anyone would like a specific saw please let me know and we’ll
accomodate.

Out of pocket expenses should be around $75.00

My email is: waho6o9@yahoo.com

4 months should be enough time to make a saw
we’ll trade October 1st. Send a picture around Sept. 1st.

Cool man. I’d say we give LJs Wally, ErikF, and perhaps a few others a chance if they want to offer parts or kits.

Whether we do a ‘request list,” as in, I’d like a bow saw, or backsaw….it totally up to you Waho. Because it’ll be more work for you.

And the whole send your pic of your tool before your assigned a swap partner has worked well. Keeps people from getting stiffed.

Sounds a little over my head, but count me in! :)

Gotta focus on a saw that can use a replaceable ( store bought ) blade.
