For those who are interested, I have a small survey at the top of the page on Panel Saws. I would very much like to know what you think. Thank you.
"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. The down side is that I am not able to keep up with the custom orders and unfortunately find myself not being able to accept new orders from time to time.
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. 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. 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. Any saw that is not paid for 30 days after it is invoiced will be sold to some one else.

I am down to about 4 months. But would still like to get the lead times down a bit. I have not been able to get the little hamsters to spin the cage any faster.
