Being a kid of a parent that went through the depression, some of the habit rubbed off on me. One of my Japanese saws (a Dozuki Saw) had damage to a few of the teeth, right where you use them most. So I bought the replacement blade but couldn't bring my self to toss the old blade as there was a piece of it still good. So, I cut it down and made a mini saw. Thinking it major use will be for starting cuts in hard to reach areas. Also kinda cool to have tiny saw. Anyway, this is about 1.5-2 hrs of effort. Probability could do more to finish it nicer but, this will work for my needs.

Nice save. If you have more blade left you could probably make a flushcut saw?

My parents didn't grow up during the Depression, but there's something just wrong about tossing out (mostly) usable bits of good quality steel.

My scratchstock for beading has the cutters made from a cheapo handsaw plate.
