Folded Saw Backs
Please see out
Notice here about our Summer Shop
For a long time the only type of
saw backs that were available to the saw making
community were machined ones. While they do work, we
here at TGIAG prefer the more traditional folded saw
backs. Folded backs are made from a piece of steel or
brass that is formed and "folded" into a pinched
U-Shape. This shape grips and add tension to the saw
plate. In our honest opinion it is a more secure method
and it easily re-postionable.
Over the past two years Mike and I have been working at
developing the dies that would give us that classic
shape. After months and months of efforts we arrived at
the final design.
So as you can guess we are now extremely proud to offer
our new line of Folded Saw Backs. We are
selling both Brass and Steel folded saw backs. If you
are into the more traditional looking Disston-like saw
backs, then the steel saw backs are for you.
If you prefer a bit more "Bling" then our brass spines
are the way to go.
Each are made to our exacting standards and folded using
our specially designed dies. The overall shape and
finish are reminiscent of early Sorby or British saws
with a dash of old school brass Disston
saw backs for flare.
We are currently selling them in (6) different lengths
- Saw backs are supplied cut to
length and unpolished. The final shaping, sanding,
and polishing is left to the user.
