I want to make a folding bucksaw, a bit like the one shown in
. But that means that I
need to cut a slong slot in both the uprights and the crosspiece, to
cover the sawblade. I do not own a router or a tablesaw.
Is it possible to do it with a circular saw? Any other suggestions? I've
thought of gluing up three pieces of wood, but that feels like cheating.
How do I set my laser printer on stun?
You can clamp your tablesaw to a table upside down and set up an independent
fence for cutting your slot.
You could use a bisquit jointer if you have one.
Or you could go with the 3 bits of wood solution - I would seriously consider
it and not think it cheating at all: you'll probably end up with something
stronger than 1 single bit of wood with a slot. I cut my hammer handles out of
5-ply (homemade) stock, for instance - they last several times longer. Make it
a feature and use different coloured hardwoods :-)
