Several weeks ago, a member of another forum mentioned that he scans saw handles on a flatbed scanner. I thought this was absolutely brilliant and an excellent way to document the exact proportions of a handle. Whether it is a budding handle-maker looking for ideas, a historian attempting to document style changes or simply someone curious about handle design, scans are a faithful copy of an object that is easily mangled, destroyed or otherwise lost to time. In this thread, I will post scans of handles of saws that I have; I encourage others to do the same. The images are currently hosted on Flickr, which downsizes the picture, but I will attempt to find a good filehost for the full-size image so that people can download them. In the meantime, if anyone wishes to obtain a copy of the original image, just ask me and I'll happily oblige.
