The problem I have with wire saws is that they are difficult if not impossible to operate with just one arm / hand etc.I'm new here but not new to the idea. Sorry if I'm repeating someone elses thread.
I'm looking for a wire saw that is compact and usable, if one exists.
Wannabes huh. You're the one asking about wire saws there buddyYoutube is great for wannabes. Thanks but not what I was looking for.
My wife is a surgical nurse, she packs the ones used for cutting bone in surgery. (Gigli)Let me back up and clarify. I am looking for a good quality wire saw. If one exists.
I already sell folding saws, pack saws such as the Wyoming saw, and a few others. I'm not asking which type is better. If you are one armed or one handed I think for the most part either one is going to be difficult to operate.
Agreed. The problem with wire saws is that no matter what brand, the user will invariably end up sawing with their wrists close together. It's just natural. You think it'll work better if you pull on it harder as you saw and your hands get closer and closer. Problem is, that's exactly like bending a wire coathanger back and forth. They get hot and break. Everything does with constant working like that. Material failure. A small stick bow will serve to keep the wire as straight as possible....unflexed as possible....so it'll last a few more uses than otherwise. Wire saws are notorious for being of limited use, though.I like the idea of using a limb bow with wire saw.
