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
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).

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.
