This is an alternative for a t-shank saw.

Yes, I did see that but it seems a poor way of doing it next to J-sews profiled blades.

I just got the belt clip in the post but what saws does Bob use?

Not sure they are common in the UK where we mainly use the Bosch 't' shank blades which have a too small shank although the thickness is spot on at about 1.03 to 1.1mm.  The belt clip is 1.07mm thick.

Thanks for the link Sam :like: I haven't tried that method but it would work in a pinch :tu: member Tofty also had a saw blade exchanger made that fit in the clip slot as well, it was available on shapeways I think :think:

Another update - I popped into our local hardwear shop and they have reciprocating saw blades that are ideal and I guess the same or similar item that Bob used.  Like these:

I will look at getting some done and see how it works - might even be a commercial application here as no one else seems to be selling them but I reckon a mixed pack of say six pre cut to clip straight into a Wave might be useful?

reciprocating saws

if you got a dremel have a go at cutting them yourself its pretty straight forward and cheaper.
i made a one few days ago and made a right pigs ear of it but it fits in solidly.

i used a wood saw so had to thin it to 1mm as pocket clip is tapered at top and 6mm pivot.

word of advice, leave cutting locking notch til last, get rest fitting perfectly first.

Thanks - I hope to start the ball rolling this week - may look at making these commercially if it works out.

In the meantime I've been grinding to replicate one of my favourite SOG tools (the EOD spike) for the large bit holder on the Wave.

I've also gone through three more brand new 8mm flat bits trying to get an awl just how I like it but ended up with more grinding dust than awl.  Another three on the way and I'll try again next week!

J-sews also took a spade drill bit for wood and made an awl that fit the bit holder  :tu: Seems like it was either a 5/16" or 1/4" spade bit :think: and he also made a chisel bit as well :cheers:

Yep, I definitely cannot claim originality on this!  The 8mm (5/16 or slightly larger is 3/8 in the US) flat bits work great though as you only have to grind slight diagonals on the edges and they slot straight in.  As a bonus if making an awl these particular ones also come pre drilled.  Plus the flat section sits nicely on the grinder 'rest' so you can keep everything square and even.

Alright...back from the dead!!!

Although I already had a jigsaw blade adapter for my Wave, I felt it made the "whole saw" extremely long and with not much cutting/teeth area; most of the blades I use are about 7cm(2 5/8") on the teeth. Looking through the archives (older posts), I found this post and thought, hmmm...it might work; a trip to the hardware store and 10 minutes later with a Dremel, I had this!

I like it because: it has a cutting area of 8.5cm (3 5/8"); it's a full one piece design (sturdier and, less finicky), it's thinner overall, and easy to carry in sheath within the bit cards( I made a paperboard slip so the teeth don't mar the plastic or get caught in the nylon). Although I loose the ability to change blades, my needs usually dictate thin wood, metal, or plastic (PVC tubing mostly) and I think it's a good tradeoff. What do you people think?!

Edit: OOOHH, THANKS TO ALL FOR THE INSPIRATION! :hatsoff:

Thanks for reviving this Juan. One thing I wanted to try out but forgot about.

Excellent job and it appears to work great  :like:

Obviously it depends on how well you can handle your dremel  :D

Hello to all. Although I was happy with the saw for the Wave, I wanted something similar for my ST 300. Well...here it is!!!😁
