I'm building a bowsaw. I don't have blades yet. I'll hunt around for
bits of busted bandsaw blade eventually. I've never actually seen one
in person (a bowsaw, not a busted bandsaw blade.)
My question, for people who have actually seen a live bowsaw: Are
the blades drilled like hacksaw blades? What diameter hole? How far
from the ends are the holes? Are the holes for different brands the
same diameter? Are sizes of blades measured hole-to-hole, or by total
I'll manufacture the holding bolts when I've got some blade to play
with. I don't want to be locked in to one brand of store-bought blade.
I haven't cut the crossbar yet; with some data I'll know whether to
go ahead and make it the length of the "bugsaw."
And after this project, I'm planning a frame re-saw.
