“Every smith needs a good hacksaw and finding a quality saw frame can be tough these days. The Lancashire pattern hacksaw frame will meet this need and be an attractive part of your tool kit. Made for at least 150 years, this pattern of saw has the advantage of securely holding saw blades in a manner that will not twist like most other hacksaw frames. This project involves forge welding, slitting and punching, fitting and lots of filing. Turned handles will be provided.”

Anvil in need of use. One of many shut down projects now needs action !!! Things are looking brighter on all fronts, many interesting course offerings through the remainder of summer and the year.
