I mentioned in a previous post that I am starting to realize that saws should not be designed to have the plate replaced and/or taken apart, it seems more logical to build so that the saw never comes apart. One thing that made me think that way is the Corby bolts. The Corby bolts are a takeoff on the Loveless pins, which are a stainless sleeve with a screw. Both of these designs were intended to allow snug up when assembled with epoxy, to hold it together, but after it dries the ends are first cut off with a band saw, and then ground on a belt grinder. I bought these copper Corby Bolts which I may use in my knifes and/or handsaws. I show how the Corby opened to show that there is a flat section that extends through the knife tang, as it could do the same on a handsaw handle. All you need to do is make them deeper, I think I could make some bronze ones using 1/2" bronze rod, epoxy everything together, handle, nuts, saw plate, et al... Loveless Corby Any comments?
