I was successful with a complete tear down cleaning and rebuild. The most difficult part for me was removing the spring clip that retains the bearing race. Assembly was uneventful!

Comment on Wanted to buy: Burr saw toother / retoother by Isaac http://jllqt.com/blog/wanted-to-buy-burr-saw-toother-retoother/#comment-91368 Tue, 27 Aug 2019 17:30:13 +0000 http://jllqt.com/blog/?p=1188#comment-91368 Brent,

Mostly I just like to find and use machines that are a little more on the uncommon side. I’ve never owned a Foley retoother, but have not heard anything bad about them. I assume they and the Burrs are about the same in terms of build quality.

大发体育One advantage that the Burr has is in the punch and die. I can use both ends of the die, and the end of the punch is ground in a triangle so that all three corners can be used. That lets me go longer between sharpenings, as I can just rotate the punch 60 degrees to use a fresh corner.

大发体育On the downside, parts and ratchet bars are going to be more difficult to find for the Burr. I did have some bars made for my machine, so that can be worked around.

Regards,
Isaac

What made the Burr so desirable to you? I have two Foley machines myself and they work fine. But a friend of mine is selling his Dad’s sharpening equipment and they have a Burr machine and 4 ratchet bars. Does it have some advantages over a Foley?

Just trying to give my friend an idea of what to do with the stuff from his Dads shop.

大发体育Thanks for any insights,

Comment on Closing the slot: An addendum to “Saw build along 鈥?Back, Part III” by Isaac http://jllqt.com/blog/closing-the-slot-an-addendum-to-saw-build-along-back-part-iii/#comment-82056 Tue, 16 Apr 2019 00:04:04 +0000 http://jllqt.com/blog/?p=1235#comment-82056 Steve, Not a typo. Different alloys vary widely in their strengths, and the alloys themselves vary in their hardness (or temper). Between these two alloys, the brass is stronger.

A machinist vise will work to close the slot up. Just take it slow, as it’s a lot easier to close it a bit more than to try and stuff the blade into a slot that’s too narrow.

I thought brass was the softer of the two metals. In any case, is it still possible to use a machinist vise to close up a bronze back? Or is this technique reserved for brass.

Does your brace have the black plastic handle, or the earlier brown composition one?
