Crosscut saw steel

Post by bsk_crosscutter » September 15th, 2016, 12:38 pm

I am thinking about making some crosscut saws. Where could I find some steel in small quantities?? Is there any website??
Thanks

Maybe a section of large sawmill bandsaw blade?
They can be wide enough and as long as you want. Your saw would not be taper ground though.
I think it would be about the only suitable steel now.

You may want to check with "underbucker" on this forum. He has made at least a couple from new materials. He even had them taper ground/milled.

I had some water-jet cut from Uddeholm '000' 12 gauge bandsaw steel. This came from a bandsaw maker who had a roll-end available.

For these prototypes, I purchased new precision-ground flat stock. An expensive way to go, but I wanted a specific high-carbon, medium-alloy steel with very fine grain. Goal was to end up with a saw that could be heat-treated all the way through (not case-hardened), could be hardened to mid-50s (HRc), and would have better edge retention than high-carbon non-alloyed steel.

How do you heat treat such a large piece of steel without warpage?

The area you only temper is the extreme ot the teeth.
The main part of the saw is not affected by the heat thread.
