Bad axe saws

Recommended Posts

So I put down the down payment on the bad axe 14” bayonet saw. I needed a good crosscut joinery saw. I went looking for a LN but they all sold out at all the places I know that sell them. I went with the hybrid tooth pattern instead of just crosscut figured I would give it a shot I can always refile it.

It’s still sooner than LN is expected to be caught back up also

I think it can be a combination of both.  People are/were stuck at so they are doing more things around the house, AND the people that make this stuff are also stuck at home.  My Grandson and his girl friend where looking for some decent mountain bikes last month and couldn't find anything anywhere.  They finally gave up.  Then there was just an article in the paper last week about a lot of exercise gear being in the same boat.  People are home wanting to do things to exercise so they are wiping out inventories and nothing new is being manufactured because of the stay at home thing for workers that make the stuff.

That’s exactly what it is LN has it post all over their website. The backlog at bad axe is normal since they build saws one at a time an don’t start til they get the deposit first. 
 

Chet I’ve heard the same about them. Shannon Rodger brags a lot about them. A few other YouTuber say they are best filers in the business. I’m looking forward to seeing what a perfectly sharpen saw cuts like. All I have to go off is my sharpen from the factory Veritas sharpening. I know my sharpening is a lil better than theirs but there is a bias to that😁. I’ve done a version of BA hybrid tooth on my 7tpi handsaw I use an like it cuts smooth. I don’t know if I could do it on a smaller tooth tho

Bad Axe makes a really nice saw.  I was looking at the LN DT and carcass saws and decided to keep using my Veritas for the time being due to the back order and I like how the Veritas fits in my hand.  I do like the looks of the saws Brian Noel makes at Bearkat Wood.

I love my LN dovetail saw an if it wasn’t for the back order that is what I would have gotten.

The hardest part is the wait. I’ll probably forget I ordered it til I get the last invoice for it in 3 months

I got a email from them today. They want to know the type of joints I would be cutting with saw an types of wood I normally use. So they could customize the tooth geometry to match the work I would doing with it. That is awesome service right there. I’ll be surprised at what they come up with. Hopefully they will share that info so I could try a mimic it myself or I may just send it back to them for resharpening depending on the wait time.

The biggest difference with saws I’m figuring out is the hang angle. You want a lower hang angle if you are cutting at bench top height. But for sawing in a vise such as tenon shoulders or dovetails a higher hang angle is better.
