Bowsaw's

For those of you who use a bow saw, where do you get your blades? Found a set of plans for one (Joat may have posted them) and before I got to far along wanted to make sure that I could get blades or build it to fit existing blades. Was thinking that a fine bandsaw blades cut to the right length and holes punched in the ends would work in a pince. Thanks for any info...

I bought the 600 mm ECE bowsaw from this site and I'm very impressed with it. I bought the Japanese style blades (the rip blade and crosscut blades, NOT the "Universal" blade). Very high quality, if a bit pricey, but the cuts are worth every penny, IMHO. I also got replacement European stock blades but after using the Japanese blades I haven't even tried them out.

I use a bowsaw purchased from Highland Hardware with replacement blade to match (also purchased from Highland Hardware). http://www.tools-for-woodworking.com/ (Danish Bowsaw)
I know a fella that made his own and he uses old bandsaw blades, cut to length, holes drilled in the ends, and sharpened by hand. Sounds like too much work for me. He doesn't have a web site so I can't post a link.

Somewhere in the basement I have a few coils of bow-saw blade stock I purchased off of Pete Taran many years ago and never used. If/when I can find them I'll hook you up.
