In this video I make a fret saw from some scrap steel that I had. For the upper arm I used a combination of forging and filing and the rest was done with welding and filing.
Very fun project but involves a lot of ornamental filing and a ton of filing in general.
Inspiration for this project was Seth Gould - a blacksmith who does some spectacular work and if you would like to buy one that is even more beautiful please visit his page at:

I played with split screen to make the filing a bit more interesting as I had a lot of footage of me hand filing and it would be boring if I hadn't done something about it.
Nice and useful little tool for the shop.
