Re: Saw Anvil

I'm thinking that Burton Saw can still get anvils of what ever size and shape you want. Most will be mild steel blocks. I send my anvils in to have them reground about every five years. The round saw anvils have a slight crown to them unless you want it flat. the Band saw anvils are flat. Armstrong,...

Re: Saw Anvil

I've found that when hammering any saw, whether it be a band or circular the hammer has a better ability to strike solidly, if the anvil is slightly crowned. When there is a concave surface the saw will be lifted from the anvil slightly and the hammer will just bounce off the saw plate. Most all my ...

Looking for information on this saw. It was found on a fire in Idaho. It looks like a Canadian version because of the three holes.

Re: Welding broken teeth?

I've used the Lincoln 100 for a long time and have just upgraded to the 145. They both run on 110volts and I also use the (Mixed Gases) 75% Argon/25% CO2. for the shielding gas. which gives a good clean weld. I posted a bit on replacing teeth awhile back on this site.

Re: Foley machines or Jigs to assist filing

From my experience with the Foley handsaw sharpeners, they work OK for Carpenter handsaws and some circular saw applications. Because the cutter teeth of a large crosscut saw tends to be a complex convex shape, it is best to hand file the teeth. To get the proper convex shape (Almond shape) it takes...

Re: Handles for Atkins #4 hammer

Swage bars? Good grief, something else for me to dive into. Got an explanation on what a bar is used for, since I am so dense and lazy to research it myself. Honestly, this is the first time I've seen one and I ain't got a clue what it's purpose might be. Disston says that the swage bar is for use ...
