Made this rasp from an old broken band saw blade.
Several cut to size (whatever they are - about 200mm) and a total of 9mm diameter means it's a very useful tool for making slots in wood (I'm a wooden toymaker) that are, well, 9mm wide
Having arthritic hands and a wood lathe means I just had to make some handles for it. A bit over the top, but I enjoy having a play.
An oversize hole allows the blade(s) to be firmly pushed in and epoxied in, not that they really need the epoxy.
Thanks for having a look.
Nice, I already saw the trick for the several blades, but the second handle is a great addition !
How many layers of blade did you put together ?
One must never through away anything , especially old bandsaw blades. (or hacksaw blades)
Thanks Christophe. I just ducked out and counted -11 layers all up and a quick re-measure shows it's 6mm wide not 9mm.
No wonder I found it useful - 6mm is a typical size for some of the timber I use.
Must admit, the end handle was more an attempt to see if I could turn a sphere(ish) shape free hand
Sorry my mistakes in english.

I alternated them. No reason, just remembered seeing a bought one that looked like that
On reflection, I should try another one with them all facing the same way like a Surform type rasp.
