Superloyal Jane: This is the best saw I've seen great job 👍

Ron Hart: Hi Robin,
Nice job on your hand held buck saw. Very well explained, well thought out. Thank you for sharing.

Anthony Mosiman: In the storage mode, replace the wingnuts with T-nuts. They fit flush and don't get lost because they are mounted to the cross-piece member. Along that same train of thought, replace the storage carriage bolts with countersunk slot screws. Same reason, they fit flush. Every Leatherman and Victorinox has a slot screwdriver patiently waiting for employment. Or, you could use a dime, one thin dime, one tenth of a dollar. This substitution would behoove the blade mount too. Snagging things in the backpack should be avoided if at all possible.
I'll be curious to see if abandoning the trapezoidal structural gambit is a non-issue for saw frame rigidity to remain rectangular and not becoming a rhombus with the dowels and broad shoulders of the center board.
BOTTOM LINE: I like it!!

Scoutforlife: Enjoyed this Robin, Neat Job on that.Like the way the blade is kept out of trouble when its folded.Found you researching a saw video i was putting out. I'd appreciate you taking a look if ya have time. Subbed you. Peace.

keepercreek: Amazing job - love the finger grooves!

Louicanthrope: Thumbs up, well done

Midwest Woodcraft: hey robin, how often have you used this saw, and how is it holding up.. Im looking to make one myself, and I really love the design.

youngchun jung: I saw many bucksaw made DIY.
And I made one myself.
But, yours is the best of the best.
Great job. mam.

Bill23799: Nicely done. Only thing missing was a wood cutting demonstration. Have you used it to cut much wood?
How well does it work? I know some folks prefer to angle in the sides about 15 degrees. Do you think that
adds some strength to the saw?

TREX3151: Sitting here at the kitchen table with a 1x3x4ft Ash board. Your saw is very close to what I had in mind except for the blind shallow hole for the dowel. That is a great idea and I plan on adding that to the build. Great vid and thanks for taking the time to film it and get it out there!

gig777: I've made one of these folding saws and a few non-folding saws. In order to avoid having to use washers to fill the excess gap between the blade and the upright member, I used a very thin razor saw with a .020" kerf to cut the channel. Specifically, a Zona razor saw. It works great, saws accurately and fast, and provides a tight fit for the blade, so that you don't need to use any washers.

stepitup: you sure a trusting sole with that saw there little lady.... thats a nucklebuster tryin to cut that groove... But I like it.

nava1uni: Nice instruction.  A suggestion is to mount your miter piece to a board and then you can clamp it to a table and it won't move on you and cutting will be easier

Thaddeus: you go girl!

Sikorsky67: Very instructable! Thanks for the pedagogical video.
