Folded Medium Brass Back
Alamo Toolworks is proud to present it's line of folded metal backs for handsaw makers. Here we have our ATW Medium Brass Back. This back is made from 260 cartridge brass folded 180 degrees to form the ultimate in saw backs. A 12" long back weighs an incredible 6.53 oz. / 184.6 grams. If you want to build a heavy duty backsaw with mass and stability this is the back for you. This back is suitable for all backsaw plates from 0.015", or perhaps less up to 0.020". This is a tight-grip saw back, best for thinner saw plates, how thin? I don't really know but 0.012" may be possible. Full installation instructions included with purchase. You will need a heavy soft-faced hammer (48 oz. or so), a good vise and a heavy or stoutly mounted work bench. We stand behind our products 100% - if you are not satisfied with the back when you receive it we'll refund your purchase price within 14 days.
Note: No refunds for backs that have been installed, modified or otherwise damaged by the purchaser. The backs are hand made and so the sizes are approximate.
