  • Looking for a blade for a Frame Saw

    Anyone have any idea where I could buy a blade? I am about to make a Frame Saw and would like to see what blades are available before I settle on dimensions.

    Re: Looking for a blade for a Frame Saw

    I found them at Lee Valley, Home Hardware and Amazon by searching for "Buck" saw blades. or for "Bow" saw blade. Many choices.

    If you would like to experiment with a very coarse pitch blade (maybe for ripping or pulling), I have some 7/8P x 1-1/4" mill band pieces to give away still. No charge ... just the postage amount to your local food bank.

      It depends on what kind of frame saw you want. I made blades for my saw from band saw blade with pin ends Click image for larger version

      Hope that helps!

          I bought this one for the frame saw I made several years ago.
