    The bow saw blades cam from Gramercy tools, for the stair case saw TGIAG (two guys in a garage). Both are small companies with super good people running things.

    Re: Bow saw being used to cut out a stair case saw

    I've heard of the TFWW bow saw blades. Did you get multiple blades for the different tpi?

    Also,are you making an actual staircase saw or a kerfing saw for you frame saw?

    Yep, they sale them in packs of three all different tooth counts, the counts elude me at the moment, if you go to their web site they will be listed. As far as the other saw, as stated it is a stair case saw. I do have a kerfing saw under way, I'm working on the fence arms, it will be a bridle type fence.

    Re: Bow saw being used to cut out a stair case saw

    here is a link to the Gramercy bow saw : https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/..._12%22_Bow_Saw

    and here is a link to the blade set: https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/...Bow_Saw_Blades
    the blades are 12" long and come in 10TPI, 16 TPI and 24 TPI. $9.95 each or 3 for $13.95!

    Unfortunately, I found a GREAT bow saw (Read Antique with TONS of patina and the thought I am touching something that was used to make GREAT things) , but it requires a 15" blade and I talked to the people at TFWW and was told; "No, we don't make the blades to any specification..."

    I have called woodcraft bands and he is willing, but I think I am going to make a trip up there some time soon... (he has 10, 16 and 24 TPI!!!)

    All that said... bow saw class - COOL! hope I can do it...

    Re: Bow saw being used to cut out a stair case saw

    I really need to make one. I started one a year or so back but gave up on it for some unknown reason. More than once lately I've had the need for one....

    Not sure what be a stair case saw, but I really like that apparatus you are using for sawing with your bowsaw.

    Re: Bow saw being used to cut out a stair case saw

    When I got out of the Navy in 1966, I began the work on my little homestead by building a barn, then a hay shed. In the tool department I had a bucksaw, claw hammer, and wrecking bar, along with measuring tape, square, and pencil. Those were happy days working on my own piece of land, nearest neighbor half a mile away, situated on a hill top in western NY State, in a very rural area. I think back to those times and marvel at all that was accomplished with no electricity and very few tools. How times have changed for me as I've become a wattage consumer. Those traditional tools, like the bow saw, hand planes, and other hand tools accomplished some very fine woodworking fetes! I really enjoyed watching you work with those tools Richard, you are a true traditional craftsman!

    Re: Bow saw being used to cut out a stair case saw

    Well thanks Bruce, your going to make me blush. But thanks a lot, I think it's very cool to hear of your beginnings as young veteran striking out on your own.
    Danny, Tendriver is right, that is a birds mouth, used to do fret work with a bow saw, fret saw, and or a coping saw. It's very simple to build and you can make it as elaborate or ornate as you like, I kept mine almost simple and plain, just a little touch ornate. Now as far as the stair saw, it has the ability to adjust the depth of cut, originally designed for letting in stair treads and riser boards into the skirt boards on a set of stairs, its right handy for cutting in the side walls of dados before removing the bulk of the waste wood in that area, therefore establishing the side walls and the depth of a dado. I do hope this helps and thanks for reading my ramblings.
