A ripsaw conversion candidate?

Post by SwedeJoel » November 7th, 2022, 11:18 am

Hello!
I have a question.
A year ago i bougth this sawblade, made by sandvik, and when i got the blade home i found out that the teeth dosen't lokk filed or set at all. I set it aside thinking if I sould get rid of it but then i tought, maybe it can be made into a ripsaw?
I have crosscuts, i don't need another one but in my persuation to be able to process wood into something usefull with handtools. A rip saw is missing in my inventory.

Would it be dooable or am I just wasting time and should by a pit saw....witch is extreamly rare here in Sweden...

Best regards/Joel

Because of the overall shape of the teeth and the shape of the points of the teeth I would call that a rip saw as it is. Just may need to be sharpened a little to be serviceable.
