I’ve just started using an antique jewelers saw frame that has
exaggerated a problem I have experienced with some of the newer
frames: The sawblade cuts to the right, making diagonal cuts across a
shank when used for sizing. We use stuller blades and it does it with
every blade. I use proper sawing (rocking) techniques, but the
problem seems to be magnified by this saw frame. It is aligned
properly with the blade parallel to the frame and perpindicular to
the metal being sawed. No pressure to the right, but it has a mind of
its own. Perhaps it has a demon that needs to be exorcized.
Any ideas on why this happens?
