Homemade Frame Saw (Bow Saw) – Scrapwood Challenge Ep28



Another tool making video, I’ll try and make something non tool related for my next video but no promises.

Paul Sellers article and video was helpful so thanks to him for sharing his knowledge. Here’s a link https://paulsellers.com/2015/10/making-a-frame-saw/

  1. One of the worst video's I've seen.
    Why not use standard galvanised steel studding instead of brass, and while you're at it,…a hacksaw blade instead of a modified band blade.
    Rain on tin roofs, say no more.

  2. Love the tool making videos, just wish it was a little more "how to". I can follow along Pauls article but what fun is that when You Tube tutorials exist.

  3. Currently sat in the barbers in the UK and I hear your voice from the guys phone next to me. Looks like you're popular where I am. Crazy! Keep up the awesome videos!

  4. Ah !!! Les outils de mon Grand-Père !!! Beaucoup de souvenirs grâce à cette vidéo !!! Merci ! Cordialement !
    Ah !!! The tools of my grandfather !!! Many memories thanks to this video !!! Thank you ! Cordially !

  5. SO MANY UNNECESSARY THINGS YOU COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT…..I MAKE THOSE FOR TREE CUTTING AND IN HALF THE TIME TOO. STRING LOOKS BETTER TOO.

  6. I made one of these a couple years ago for camping and although I could've gone with the store-bought metal frame, the look and most importantly the feel of a wood frame can't be beat.
    Nice workmanship!

  7. Nice project. This old design still has a lot of usefulness left. I made one like this a few years back, to take hacksaw blades, which had the advantage of already having the holes drilled. I like your method with the masonry bit though, and hacksaw blades are a bit short where you can cut the bandsaw blade to any length you want. I'll have to try that next time I make one. Another slight modification: I found it a bit more durable to make the blade pins from cut off masonry nails rather than screws. I ground shallow grooves into them where the blade would sit, so once they were in place and the blade tensioned, they couldn't come out. If I ever make another, I think I'll also turn some pegs for the blade to swivel on, for curved cuts and awkward angles.
