Pimp Your Fret Saw
A very kind Canadian customer sent me a replacement handle for my Knew Concepts fret saw. It is larger, much heavier and beautifully made in Cocobolo. You can check out his blog here http://richard-wile.blogspot.co.uk/
Richard is not interested in selling these but you can buy similar replacement handles from http://www.elkheadtools.com/saw_handles.html that is if you afford them, they cost more than the saw itself! Knew Concepts should put better handles on their saws considering their price tag but you can always make your own out the wood of your choice.

A while ago Richard made this lovely plane adjusting hammer, it's nicely balanced, does a great job and is my hammer of choice.
