You'll proabably get plent of replies---One thing though: On your
sawframe, take off the metal tabs that hold the blades, and
roughen them up, and cut new grooves in them- separating disk works
well, or a hart bur......
Thanks John, my saw was one of them newfangled cast aluminum
t ever buy one....unless you want to buy a news a really nice saw, to begin with,
one every year, it seems. It
perfectly centered on the blade, completely rigid, nice big cushy
handle and blade change is a breeze...but when it breaks, (eg.: the
screw tip that holds the blade in gets worn down a little bit).
because...ya can`t take it apart to fix it AAAAAACCCCCK!!!
...anyways,...living in an artist community,...I called around a bit
and was able to borrow a sawframe, and made a new piece, which is
sooo much nicer, than the original, which I cut almost two years ago
(in about half the time I cut the original piece)... with the
stonesetting soldered before I cut the piece. I feel a lot more
confident that way, :-))
I also did an experimental thing and set four cabs onto an already
cut knot work triskelian piece, and only slightly reticulated it
for that extra nice aged finish (cough cough, throat clear, wink)
