"Form follows function"
But who says form can not dance in it's foot steps?
If it feels right and cuts well, it is a good saw. If it feels right, cuts well, and looks good doing it, It's a Bontz Saw. :)
First things first. I would like to thank every one that has desired and orderd one of my saws. It is very flattering as well as humbling. It pleases me greatly, my saw designs have been met with such acceptance. I spent many hours at an old drafting table as well as computer CAD trying to come up with something unlike any thing out there. Vintage or otherwise. Easier said than done. I post the many different saws I have made to better assist you in choosing the right saw and options for you. That being said, my saw designs are copyrighted and any duplication for commercial purposes is prohibited. Thank you. Ron
If you are looking for a saw just exactly like your neighbors, you are out of luck. Sorry . There are no nifty CNC machines, or magic duplicating machines in my little shop. I don't make production saws. ( Yet ) Just me in my overcrowded little shop. I won't tell you my saws are the latest or the greatest. I will just let the saws speak for themselves. Each and every saw spine, and handle is shaped by me. And yes, every tooth on the saw is sharpened by me for you by hand. So nobody to blame for imperfections except me and no two saws will be exactly alike. Any size, any style. Every saw is your saw.
Now about those shaped saw plates:
My saw plates tend to be a little longer than the stated size due to the shaping. But if you prefer a rectangular saw plate, for that "traditional" look, I can do that too. No extra charge. Just let me know.
If you are interested in one of my saws, feel free to view some of the recent saws I have made for myself and others. You can also see some of my saws directly below as well. I will post more as I have time. I don't have a fancy photo booth either, by the way. A pretty picture does not a good saw make. So my back yard will have to do. :)
I do not take down payments on saws that are not built. You pay when the saw is made. End of story. You are free to cancle at anytime. I will send you an invoice for the saw when it is finished. You may pay with pay pal via the invoice or you may send a check or money order. But the saw doesn't ship until the check clears. :) Prices are subject to change. But if I quote you a price it stays that price.
If you have a template for a saw you want made, it never hurts to ask. Contact me to see what we can do. Just send me an E-mail with what you desire and contact information. Thank you. Ron
