Re: Big Ripsaw and Crosscut saw project: The saw plates
      04/02/12 09:26 AM

After filling a bunch of customer orders for saw plates I decided it was high time I got back on track with my own saw making project.

The saw plates for these two saws were deblued in a citric acid bath some time last week. So they were ready to go. I am using my manual Foley retoother since I have a streak of masochism. Nothing like cranking a 40 lb fly wheel while the machine is punching teeth is hardened spring steel! yeah,...I got a work out.



Here's the cross cut saw plate. It's toothed to 10ppi with 15 deg of negative rake.



Here's the rip saw plate. It's toothed to 6ppi with 8 deg of negative rake.



I'm not going to file the nibs in the saw plates just yet. I want that to be a "finishing" task.

However, I AM ready to work on the handles. I have the templates all printed out and decided that I would use some really classy material for these handles. So out came a piece of Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) and some Rosewood.



I was just about to glue the templates to the wood when I decided to see what the saws would look like. It's one thing to design something on a computer screen. But it's another one all together to see it in person. I just laid the handle template on the wood and took a photo.

Here's the Rip saw all mocked up. It looks pretty cool and I'm liking the proportions.


However, the cross cut saw looked "off". The handle just seemed too small.



When I took the template and laid it on top of an old Disston Warranted Superior (whose handle I just LOVE), it also looked too small.



This template is the one I got from another site and not one I drew up. So I'm thinking that the whole thing may be out of scale. I took photos of that Disston Warranted Superior handle and will drawing that up some time tonight. I will most likely use it.
