These I never cared for as one has to keep moving the saw in the vise to work on a fresh section of teeth. A bigger vise was in order and I spent quite a bit of time online pouring over all type and configurations until finally it was time to get to building instead of all the thinking.
My idea for this saw vise was to have replaceable jaws that were, of necessity, hard maple, the lighter tone being easier to see pencil marks and when they became cut up from file marks to unscrew the strips and in go new ones.
These new few photos show the trial runs.
This thumb hole rip saw was filed with 8 degrees rake and, being a rip saw, zero degree fleam or bevel. The saw already had a good amount of set in it, and since he would be cutting dry lumber only, that was left the was it was and did a fine job on this piece of black cherry.
And as in all my the things I do, I'm not out to hold you up for all you have! On the contrary I will work with you, not only on what you want done, but also on how much you have to spend.
So, it is time once again to say so long,
Do enjoy your day, play safe, and God Bless!
