Boys and Girls,

We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas of the past (so far)….

Buying these types of handsaws with interchangeable hand grips,

for different sized hand users.

Stupidity was not buying the two saws or even interchangeable grips, but the same sized interchangeable hand grips on both saws.

To boot, because of their profiles, they are both right handed grips… or very, very uncomfortable left handed ones!

Ducky, I won a Bahco handle and saw, tenon style and love it….
Never bought any other of the blades for it.
The handle grip is very good…IMHO…..

The whole idea is great… I vaguely remember how to use a handsaw… I have instructions engraved on the blade.

What I should have done is bought different sized handles so someone with a big mit could feel more comfort as it is a highly profiled handle… fits my hand perfect… but I have small hands… to offset the big mouth!

OR is that a bit too cheeky???

If those greenies ever get their way, I may have to read the instructions again!
