Re: Requirments For Black Belt In Framing


All I see is a right way or a wrong way to use it. Watching the blade cut away from the line, from the left side.

Ok, well I didn't have to go too far, being that I just bought this retro saw and have the original box here. It would seem that their intention was for it as a right handed saw. Basing that off the picture and and the caption for the picture.

That's pretty good, 17 years ago I was framing for $72 a day.

Btw, does anyone know the name of that song by Ramblin Rex, he had a song about framing houses for $9 an hour.

I've heard of " so tough he eats nails and sh#t's rebar" but I don't know what it takes to piss sawdust.

Because the population is predominantly right handed, a company would be foolish to market to left handed people. I believe though that there is a reason why there are fewer companies producing wormdrives and blade left saws in general. If sidewinders were designed for lefties, why so many manufacturers building a saw for a very small minority of users? Why are they not marketed as such?

The first wormdrive was a Frankenstein creation from an old kitchen mixer intended to cut sugar cane. May have just so happened it was turning in that direction and they ran with it. Ergonomics were not a consideration at that point in time.

Re: Requirments For Black Belt In Framing


That was pretty interesting. Can you imagine cutting a house with a hand rip saw?

Re: Requirments For Black Belt In Framing


What kind of shoes does a BB framer wear? I like flat tennis shoes (addidas) but I've seen guys in every thing from big heeled cowboy boots to pull on slippers.

Hightop, lace-up, low traction on the bottoms (so as to not drag mud all over), no steel toes. <<for residential ninja framers only

I like Danner Striker boots. The support of a boot with the sole of a tenna shoe.

Re: Requirments For Black Belt In Framing


I was cutting 4x6 rafters for a gazebo left handed, the GC walks by and says "south paw huh?" I just chuckled, I can use a saw right, left, forwards, backwards, upside down, right side up, dangling by one arm, whatever it takes to make the cut. Any one who uses one every day for years I'm sure can do the same.

Gotta go with sneaks, preferably flat bottoms to prevent slips when the toes are hanging over the rails of the pic.
