Re: Curtis Saw Catalog 1946

Thanks ChiricahuaZac - here in middle America (flyover country) most of the saws I have, find or otherwise procure, are Curtis saws. They sharpen well and cut good! Only 6 hours from St Louis to here.

Re: Buck saw tooth set-up

Thank you PATCsawyer - wow, that sounds really aggressive. More swage - I like that.

Re: Buck saw tooth set-up

Thank you PATCsawyer - I wondered if that would work, as it appears the existing set is 0.020"+/-. 0.025" it is! Is 0.004" on the rakers acceptable?

Buck saw tooth set-up

I am working on restoring a buck saw with a 2" wide saw blade with the daintiest champion tooth pattern. I swaged the rakers to 0.004" and wonder what you think would be appropriate tooth set.

Thanks

Re: Curtis Saw Company St. Louis

A picture of the "U" and the flat bottom gullets - this is a 6' felling saw. Who likely made it?

Re: Curtis Saw Company St. Louis

I picked up a 6' felling saw yesterday which appears to never have been used. I know somewhere on this site you guys have discussed this ("U) but after an extended search I found nothing. The bottom of the gullets between teeth and between tooth and raker is flat. On opposite sides of either end is ...

Re: 6' lance and raker bucking saw

Sandersdwa, NICE vise! 3 layers of 3/4" plywood per side? How clever for those of us that don't have access to anything but 1-1/2" lumber.

Re: Filing rakers

Thanks Jim and PATCsawyer! I use a flattened 3/8" bolt (thread end) and make certain I am square with the strike. More practice maybe! And under my microscope the "out of square" is probably only a few thousandths.

Re: Filing rakers

How do you guys end up with a sharpened, swaged raker that is perfectly square across the cutting edge. Before I swage, it is dead-on square; after, it is some planar geometric oddity that is not square. The final .003 with the sloped filing plate does not correct this. I am perplexed and frustrated...
