WOW! nicely done!
How does it cut? Does it track well?
The handle looks sharp!

Thanks, I need to do a little more work.
The handle end clamp slot was kinda difficult to get to.
I ended up using a hacksaw and cut the slot a bit too wide.
Trying to tighten it down I ended up cracking it.
Heh, shoulda taken it to a darker blue in tempering.
Ill come up with a fix somehow.

I fixed my screwup, added washers and nuts, :disgust: but saved the saw frame.
Seems to cut fine, better than the cheap carp I been using.
Ill finish up the file work and post some more pics on a new thread if its okay.
Trying to not hijack your post.
