Thread: Making a wood saw using just a Victorinox

  1. #1

    Making a wood saw using just a Victorinox


    ADVERTISEMENT
    First of all, I saw a long piece of woods, roughly 2 metres



    What I need for the wood saw: piece of wood, saw blade, my SAK, some paracord


    Cutting a piece of woods long like the blade saw


    Then, cutting two pieces of woods long like half the first piece


    This is the frame of the wooden saw


    Working the two extremities of the horizontal piece of woods…



    … and working the vertical pieces of woods to place the horizontal piece



    Preparing the vertical pieces of woods to place the saw blade




    Making two small pieces to block in tension the saw blade



    Now, I make the places where the saw blade will be blocked



    Preparing the places where the paracord will be placed


    The final frame it’s done


    Tensioning the blade whit a lean piece of wood wrapped around the paracord


    Working the wood saw, not bad at all, as usual the SAK it's just a winner, you may realize whit him just all you have in mind




    Ciao, Alfredo

    This is great. Maybe I'll strap a spare bow-saw blade to my pack.

    That is a nice outline for building a saw. I am going to have to show that to the youth in my Scout Troop.
