Hi Felicity in West oz where spring is in the air,
Nice to see some good old Aussie ingenuity at work! I do a lot
of sawing this way, as some of my spec frames are long shapes cut
from sheet. I thought I was the only one to do this, after Andy
Cooperman (US) showed me how. I have an improvement, but.
Just do the bending cold, with the blade inplace in the frame.
No need to heat it up as the ends of the blades are still
annealed, not hardened like the teeth are. Hold the frame, get
some flat pliers, and bend each end a quarter-turn at a time.
Bend to wherever you want + a little more to account for a little
spring-back. I’ve found that a slightly less or a little more
than 90 degrees helps with getting into some of my tricky long
PS, I’m looking for info on Sydney. Been there?
