You can't review saws?

On his last blog entry on pww Chris Schwarz stated, that you can't review saws because at one point you'll have to sharpen ist and set it by yourself.

There are certainly more points in a review that speed in cutting and quality of the cut.
That depends on about 4 parameter, you can also describe:
  • Weight of the spine
  • Thickness of blade and how much set
  • Pitch, Fleam and Rake (the last two can be easily changed, the first not) 
  • Hang of the handle

These parameter influence each other. A higher hang needs a leighter spine or more rake.

And there are more important parameter:

  • Thicknes of the wood,
  • Quality of the over al work
  • Taper of the blade
  • taper of the spine
  • method of fixing spine and blade to each other
  • wich finish and so on.

Isn't that what a review should do? Describe the details? Not only making a few cuts and say it saws well. Every saw that sells for more than the day wage of a worker should work extremly well.

pictures from the shop

Small changes in the shop, but as it is not saw making, I show you some results. Changedd the drill stand to a Duss. That was a good decision. And had to incorporate an old cupboard from my grandma.

Just sawmaking

Mein Beiträge sind zur Zeit eher spärlich. Weil ich im Wesentlichen Sägen baue. Und darüber habe ich hier oder auf dem TLT Blog schon alles geschrieben, was ich weiß. Auf Instagram zeige ich immer Mal Handyschnappschüsse (oft mieser Qualität). Wer Lust hat, sieht sie oben rechts. Hier mal ein Schnappschuss mit der Kamera, die Bilder werden doch besser. It's become slow on this blog. This is mainly all I do in my spare time is sawmaking. And all I've to say about saw making is already written here or on the TLT Blog. If you like you can see casual crappy Mobil pictures on instagram.
