At last the festive season is behind me and I managed to get back to the bench today.
I was given a new saw for Christmas, one of the "Knew Concepts" saws which is completely rigid. Although it is a bit fiddly to get blades into, it is an amazing tool: from the second I started to cut with it, I knew that I would not be going back to my old, springy iron frame. Because the frame is rigid the blade rarely catches in the way that we are used to with traditional frames.
I was thinking about this and wondered if this is the first major change to the jeweller's piercing saw since the middle-ages!
"Cold Genius" is back on the bench again. I've done a load of work on the box section of the piece and today completed the major construction work on it:
I'll post more photographs tomorrow.
