Available: Black Walnut, Cherry, Quarter cut sycamore, Bubinga, Madrone Burl, African Padauck, Zebra wood, Cocobolo, Hickory, and perhaps a few others I can not think of at the moment. :)

Ferrules/ caps

I have lots of extra solid Ferrules, made from CNCd 360 Brass. Some of the same ferrules I use.  $6.00 each. ( Minimum of 4 ). Buy 10 or more and they are $5.00 each. Whether you are making your own Gent saw, walking stick, or perhaps a carbide burnisher, these are quality made with lots of uses. They are approx. 1/16th" thick between the beads.

The straight ferrule has a 0.75" internal dia. x approx. 0.75" deep.

All Ferrules have a 0.125" dia. pilot hole in the closed end.

     For those who wish to make their own saw.  I offer DIY kit parts.

 

So what does a kit consist of?

No frills, no thrills.

     Just one plain slotted 360 brass back. Guaranteed to be inspection plate flat and straight with a rounded or chamfered top.

     One set of two or three 360 Brass saw fasteners. Dependent on actual kit.

     Finally one 1095 spring steel rectangular plate. Inspection plate flat. Cleaned, de blued and toothed to your desire in various thicknesses. Sharpening is available for an additional $35.00 to $50.00 fee. It's your saw. May as well make what you want. :) The different kits are listed below.

     Note: Despite current trends of "thin is in", I do not recommend any 0.020" saw plate to be over 3" tall. ( 2.5" under spine ). There is a lot to be said for the rigidity of a saw plate and the ratio of thickness vs. plate height.  Brass Backs/ spines offer no real support to the saw plate vertically. Only horizontally.

Remember: there is only a difference of 0.005" between a 0.020" plate and a 0.025" plate. But the rigidity of the plate is far more benificial.

Saw Fasteners:

     I have 4 different sizes of saw fasteners. All with 7/32" shafts and 10-32 threads.

     7/16", 1/2" , 5/8" medallions, and 3/4" medallions. All will fit up to approx.  1-1/32" thick handle.
