Where’s the Seam?



With a little bit work, you can make the make the back saw spine “sandwich” look like one piece of metal (from the top anyway).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         The sandwich is two steel plates clamping the saw plate, held together with screws (#8 x 32tpi x 1/4”. one of the plates is tapped and acts as the nut), no glue, no solder.


I filed the top flush, beveled the sides, ran some sand paper over it (because there was a piece sitting on the bench) and used a [knotted] wire wheel to “blur” the metal. On the nose, I didn’t file to full flush and you can see the saw plate.
