I’m almost/mostly/finished for now… On my first test cut I hit a staple in the end of the 2X4, ugg. But it seemed to cut nicely after a little touchup. I used the minimum setting on my saw set, and I think that may be a little too little (I’m guessing because the there are some small dents in the saw plate from being hammered that are binding, not so much that the set is too little for the plate thickness). I’m happy with it for now, and it seems to do what I wanted a small saw for. I think I’ll use it for a while, let the wood polish the blade some and then lightly re-join it and sharpen again.
The two photos I guess show the same thing, but the wood on the right is cut with my 14 inch backsaw and the one on the right with my new 10inch saw that I just finished. As you can see the smaller saw is leaving a nicer cut with much less tear out.
Thanks for the help folks!
