Fellow LJer DHS posted a fine project on a home made hand saw,
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/74701, and that was about
all the inspiration I needed. Thanks for the help and inspirtation DHS!
My goal was to get it done. Point A to B, without worrying about every little
detail and making it perfect. I knew this would be a learning experience and I
wanted to to the best I could and get er done.
That was accomplished and I’m stoked with the first cut the saw made. I’m like yeah buddy.
I will upgrade my saw files, just purchased and Ebay saw set Stanley 42x, and will make a saw holder.
Blue steel 1095 was purchased from McMaster Carr as was the brass for the spine. My friend folded
the brass on a machine and sheared the steel into 5 sections so I can make 4 more saws. McMaster
Carr was wicked quick on the shipping, like scary quick, ordered at 8am and it was on my door step
at 3:30pm, thank you McMaster Carr.
I may send out the next saw for a professional teeth cutting and setting just to have one.
My first saw cuts well, but after several inches, it veers to the right. Oops. No biggie.
I’m glad I tackled this project and pushed my limits to learn and grow my skills.
