400mm bowsaw Jigging

140.00

This smaller bowsaw has all the curves of a classic antique and the features of our larger saws including a half turn tensioning tab and waxed twine. The classic bowsaw comes fitted with either a wide universal turbo-cut blade or a narrow jigging turbo-cut blade. The blades are made in Japan, have razor sharp teeth, and work best on the pull stroke. The universal turbo-cut blade is used for both ripping and cross cutting. The jigging turbo-cut blade is approx. 3/8" wide and is used for cutting tighter radius work. The saws are made from select maple with tight fitting mortise and tenon joints combining great style and balance. With a thin kerf blade, they cut very fast and are simply a joy to work with. The handle pins are straight and fit tight in reamed holes on the frame while the handles are backed with a leather washer that compresses when the frame is tight securing the handle in place. I find that a straight pin combined with a carfully reamed hole and utilizing a soft leather washer is a better way to secure the handles over time.
