Our other document on design considerations explains how we arrived at our production design. This document details just a few additional notes on important items to consider if you are building your own saw.
The Gramercy Tools design is what we would consider the optimum for a general purpose turning saw. Historically every trade used slightly different versions of the saw to meet their own specifications. That said, we think you can have a lot of fun playing with the design and making a frame that suits your needs. You can also make multiple frames for one pair of handles, multiple stretchers for one frame, or a different toggle for each day of the week, if you like.
Safety is really important. Always wear eye protection. You never know what might happen and it's not worth the risk.
Our shop drawings are available on our website in Acrobat .PDF format. Click here. You will need to download Adobe Acrobat to read and print them. Make sure you deselect the Acrobat printing option "fit to page" (which is the default when printing the plans, otherwise they will be reduced in size.) In order to create full - sized templates the plans are formatted to print out on 8 1/2" x 14" paper. On sheet 4 of the drawing we have provided a photoscale for you to verify that your printer is not resizing the drawings.
