Pull saws in general cut faster as they are thinner. Silky saws are excellent, sharp, and fast cutting, leaving a good finish.
Do check the tooth size. Bigger teath means faster cutting. Some identical saws are made with different size teeth.
If you can get hold of shark saws, they were very...
Oh yes, and buy a chopsaw, possibly a sliding one,( cheap from Screwfix, still going strong) and use 5 X 100 torx head screws. I piloted everything with 2.5 mm holes.
Getting the sides square was tricky, so as some wedges and plywood may be your best friends.
I used 4.8 m 200 by 50mm, to make 2 layer deep decorative raised beds, 2.4m by 1.2.
I lined the sides with damp proof course to stop the soil rotting the wood, and used cuprinol on the outside. Mixed a fair amount of pearlite/ vermiculite into each bed and added a good amount of water retaining...
I've got a different version of the pocket bellows, and they work surprisingly well.
Can I just add to the comments on ferro rods being a modern innovation. If I was alone in the wild with just basic tools, I think it would take me less time to produce a civilisation capable of delivering...
If you freehand sharpen, and you're not at right angles between the stone and the blade edge, that clearance seems pretty useful to me. I have to try really hard to stop the heel of my kitchen knife blades bulging as the rest of the blade becomes worn.
Could just grind back the finger guard? It's not particularly hard. Are you intending to sharpen the new spearpoint? Why that design? Just interested. Keep posting photos, I'm watching your progress with interest.
I'd worry less about the cosmetics, and more about the structure. Change the very thick sabre grind, maybe to a convex. File the wood scales back to the tang, and slim them down a little. If you have a powerfile, it makes the work a lot easier.
Quikclot combat gauze is allegedly a little better than celox. I like the idea for the group buy, but by gum, this is going to be an expensive kit. Sam splint, maybe?
Another problem might be that most of us have a first aid kit or 7, but still need bits, often the most expensive bits. I need...
Any suggestions where to get one in the UK? Something like a meadow creature or a treasure? Don't mind the cost, but the p&p is extortionate.
My garden, and I use the term very loosely, has lots of rocks in clay. Normally if I want to plant something, a pickaxe and digging bar are involved. I...
