Does anyone know of any uses for old worn out 7-1/4" circular saw blades? I have a bunch I've been saving, because I figured the steel would be good for something, but I haven't found a use yet. Has anyone else?
I didn't think of using old table saw for anything. They do seem to be the right thickness for a plane knife. I just threw out 2 or 3 that came with a saw I bought. I've been wanting to make a wooden plane like Daren does but I didn't want to have to buy the iron for it. Darn. I was proud of myself for actually throwing something out.
For those who use scrapers regularly, what do you need to put the edge / hook on it?
The catalogs seem to want to make it more complicated than what I suspect it is...to sell expensive tools.
I see these triangular burnishers that they say are the thing to use...but then again Lee Valley or Veritas or Lie-Nielsen or whoever want to charge $$$$$ for what amounts to a piece of HSS...please help. I hate paying big bucks for a tool I could find in the landfill...
