Who can rip a handle?
I’m hoping you can help me out. I’m looking for a craftsman/carpenter/ sheddie who can assist with a small restoration project.
I recently inherited a turn-of-thecentury ripsaw when my father passed. He too had inherited it from his father so it’s been in the family for many years. Unfortunately the wooden handle has picked up some borer along the way and has now almost completely rotted away.
I can’t find anyone that sells new wooden handles and I could probably find a plastic replacement but I’m sure both father and grandfather would turn in their respective graves at the thought.
Are there any sheddies in the Auckland area prepared to take on the challenge of crafting a new wooden handle please? Thanks,
