    Great info though…
    Howdy Keegan and welcome to the cave by the Creek.

    If you think this is heated, try a sharpening thread.

    Yes, not only are the comments rather sharp, they can be very cutting.

    Waste removal outside the lines was completed on the 6 handles.

    The saw bolts have been installed using a 1/2" pilot counterbore.

    To achieve additional clearance with the bottom horn of the handle the toothlines have been canted to a value of 1mm per 1 inch length.

    To complete the saw plate slot in the handle a starting kerf is formed on the router table then taken to full depth using a backsaw of matching kerf width,

    When marking out the hardback mortise, a length of slotted brass back is fitted to the top and bottom edges of the saw plate to keep the saw plate in parallel alignment.

    Thanks Fred; it might spark some interest from others to try making their own backsaws.

    regards Stewie;
