Saw anvil.

Postby Sawman » December 18th, 2016, 12:18 pm

I have a week off work and I can now do things which I am unable to do things due to work commitments. Gavin lent me his small saw anvil and hammers on the course in Scotland.(thanks for that Gavin)
So I can learn the art of hitting metal on metal. Due to the smallness of my shed a bit a lateral thinking was needed. Bolt anvil to work bench place two large pieces of wood ever side cut through wall of shed,
make copper letter box so the saws don't cut shed in half
and now I have a working saw straightening set up.
It will take any length of saw and can bang away to my harts content.
Just need to cut another letter box on the other side. Now this is working thinking about putting my Dolly vise on there as well. So watch this space. Oh the bench all can be taken down in 5 minuets and returned to its original state. So I think we have turned yet another corner in the U.K. saw saga. Cheers Duncan.

LOVE the slot in the shed and thinking outside the box.

Well done.
