    I know it ain't a chain saw, but does anyone know of a source for 42" bow saw blades? Me and my Amish buddies are getting a bit desperate here.

    I was looking for them a while ago and found this:

    www.profhdwr.com/64331.htm

    I never tried it because I can't find the frames.

    I'm assuming this fellow means bow saw (hard work) instead of bow saw (leg-removing death machine).

    Thanks for the tips. Yes, these are the hand bow saw blades I'm looking for. My Amish pals use them a lot and I have to admit, they are handy.

    I use about a 32" bow saw for limbing and things when I don't want to fire up the 'ol Poulan XXV. Cuts nice 'n fast for me.

    I use a small 12" curved blade hand saw for pruning, works better than a bow saw for small branches, plus its much more compact. You can just slide it in a holster.

    If you are still looking for 42" inch blades, I may have a source for you. Send me an email at [email protected].

    This is an old post.....also, non-sponsors (like yourself) are not permitted to sell or advertise the forums. There is a classifieds section where you can list what you have to sell.

    I've googled till my fingers bled, All I can find is one outfit in Sweden that offers them. I've never looked into ordering and shipping.
