New Skelton Saw
Before the doors opened at the Harrogate Show, I popped round to see Shane and Jaq Skelton who had a fine display of saws as well as good stocks of their new Peacock Oil range.
Shane pulled out a very posh bag which contained my new London Fine Carcass saw. It was a long wait but well worth it!
The handle is Andaman Padouk, which I bought a few years ago from Alan Peters widow, it has a lovely glow and was bang on quarter sawn.
Although not made for dovetailing, I had a quick go at the end of the show, once the saw got started it took just two strokes to cut those tails.
