I have been hanging around the forum for some time, taking it all in, but never posted anything till now. I thought I would share this video I found. I think these contraptions are amazing. Might fuel the creative fires for some.

I am looking at this book of old designs for coping saw. It’s a reprint of a much older work, so if it’s out of copyright anything in it would be free to use. (And a coping saw was basically the glowforge of the 1500s-1900s)

Neat!
The coping saw is a great tool for detail cutting. The blades are available so small that you almost need magnification to see the teeth.
Takes a light touch and lubrication to avoid breaking them by the dozen.
