J-Sews does such a wonderful job.

No way can an amateur with a Dremel match the superiority of a machine that J-Sews uses.  :drool:

Would like to get a few more of these precision fitting blades. Snipped off the lanyard loop on my Charge to use the Charge Saw Blades without having to remove the pocket clip.

The only Leatherman I used the lanyard clip was on a Squirt S4 and lost it for a few days when it caught on something during a 2010 Census contact. The recluse had junk all around the house and was difficult getting to the front door. Was like a castle fortress.  :o

I have just found earlier today this topic and I really think it is a great mod!  Well thought of and well executed by J-sews!

The machine you used is a manually controlled one or a CNC? I would like to add a set of saw blades to the Wave I am gonna buy soon and was thinking to ask whether you still have the file (program) if you used a CNC and would share it, 'cos I know friend who knows a friend that has access to a CNC machine ;)

Thank you!

Have you seen Tofty's saw holder?

http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?topic=47167.0

Yes, funnily enough after J-sews topic here and some time back I looked into making a commercial holder myself and did some designs (I'm involved with a large UK engineering company) but the tricky design, limited market size and (as can be seen by Tofty's product) cost meant it didn't get far.  I like the J-Sews simplicity.

  I like the Charge-Saw too. This cut allows one to extend their handle for ease in cutting, and for longer reach, or fold up the handle if desired.  :2tu:

  The one on the bottom was one I had made, but the cut wasn't as exact as yours and wobbled a lot. Is great to have a precision-cut set of metal, all-purpose, and a wood saw blade. (Again, I emphasize the longer reach is desirable - least for me.)

  Also had removed the annoying and hard-to-get-out lanyard loop. Can use the Charge-Saw blade while having the pocket clip still attached.

We haven't made any in years, so no, I don't imagine there are still any kicking about.

I still have a few and I love them.  The issue was sourcing the blades at a reasonable price without buying a container load.

Actually if you ever sit down with him, you will find that he knows an awful lot about a lot of things- specifically manufacturing and processes which he does professionally, and Browning rifles, which he also collects.

Sorry to bump up an old topic but seemed the best place - I never did get hold of any of these saws and would *still* like to!  I never heard back from Bob - is anyone else doing anything remotely similar?

Not that I am aware of.  Unfortunately I sold my last one a couple of months ago.

Getting the work done isn't a problem- sourcing decent quality blades at a reasonable price has been, unless we are willing to buy 10,000, and I don't have that kind of budget.

Well, still seems like the best place to post - 2019 now and I am still wanting to get some of these.

Last time Bob replied in 2014 he planned to make more.

I have PM'd him a few times last few years but never a reply.

If he or anyone who might be able to provide a set of these saws is reading please help us all out who would like them.  Happy to cover all costs of course.  :)

Bob isn't active much anymore and I don't know a direct source for anymore of these type saws but you could go to a machine shop and see if they could cut some for you :salute: take a clip or the removable lanyard with you and they could take it as a pattern to cut the blades :cheers:

Yes, I think that might be the best option - not sure how easy it will be to find a machine shop that can mill that precisely.  Bob's sure were nicely done.

I did think of an alternative yesterday with mounting in the large bit holder but that needs a hole drilled in the saw blade and none of my (reasonably quality) bits will penetrate them.  Even centre punching the blade just caused the hardened metal to shatter.
