Folded Saw Backs
PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT SHOP
CLOSURE UPDATE ON MAIN PAGE!
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.
These 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

overwhelming popularity of the Brass Saw backs, production
