The beast is a 4x48" blade with 3 ppi. I tried 2 and 3" wide blades too but the 4" works best for tracking a line through really wide stuff. (most I have cut is a 24" wide Walnut slab so far). The smaller guy is a 2x36" blade also at 3 ppi and a slightly shorter wheelbase to the frame. This is one I use for veneer work as I usually am only sawing veneers for smaller things like drawer fronts. It handles 12" wide stock nicely and I have sawn 1/8" veneers with it. I'm sure it would go thinner but I like a heavier veneer since I usually tooth it and smooth it later.

If you want to see the saw in action I posted a video on my site and it also has links to the blacksmith and saw maker I worked with on the hardware.

Nice looking saws, buddy. Did you tooth the saw plats or find a place willing to make em? I want a veneer web but have been coming up short of time to source the steel and tooth it... I went back and for with Thomas Flinn and despite making a few for CW they couldn't seem to wrap their head around what I wanted. They did I nice job on my open Pit saw though.

I also have to make a frame pit saw to accompany my open pit saw for the museum. I'm probably going to just tooth a piece of band saw stock for 'decoration' lol

Bump....

This is an awesome thread for handtool woodworkers! :smile3:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I'm definitely going to order a kit for that frame saw from Blackburn tools, as soon as I recover from all the money I spent this week on a shelix head & a chainsaw lol

I've been hoping to find a way to resaw a 3" thick walnut burl slab, and a 4' frame saw is the answer!!

It's hard to mess up 2 pieces of wood... but other than my work bench I think this is all that counts as a tool.

My first hand made planes.




Decided to add a deep adjustment/stop to them to add some stability and control.

Thumbs up Cold in the shop

Made a quick mallet last week between the cold cold days.
I make models so don't need a heavy duty one.
This is a dead blow mallet.
Mahogany walnut oak.
Then one from last year.
Oak, mahogany with a touch a walnut.
