Two 10 inch 16 tpi back saws. The blades are 0.020” thick (five sheets of paper) 1095 steel and 3” from teeth to the top of the back.
– One has an Elm handle and steel back (3/4” x 1/4”). The steel has a baked on linseed oil “bluing”. Filed rip.
– Madrone (I think) with a tapered brass back (7/8” to 5/8” x 1/4”). Filed crosscut.
All hardware is shop made out of brass or aluminum excepting the 10-24 (handles) & 8-32 (backs) screws and Lee Valley brass Countersunk Washers (I made the aluminum ones).
- Nipple spear take 2. Got smart and copied the commercial version. Learned a few things about work holding, the bulbous end fits both a collet and a center. On a manual lathe you flip it couple of times. Two tapers.Spoke spear - for digging nipples out of a puddle of linseed oil and putting them in a deep(ish) dish rim socket. Serrations really help retain the nipple. No idea of the angle, just stuck a shim under the front of the spinner and ground away.
