    Yes, we don't know for sure what the thinnest saw plate used was back in the 1700s, but the littlest & thinnest saw in the Seaton chest (from the end of the 18th C) measures up at ~18 thou. I think 20 thou is a very good choice for a small saw, the current fad for thinner saws notwithstanding, (& yes, I do own a few very thin saws!).

    However, if you want to do a lateral arabesque into saw-making and the merits of saw-plate thickness, let's move over to the saw-making section, where information on saws will be more easily discovered than in a plane thread. Unless anyone has strong objections, I think we should declare this thread closed.....

    Cheers,

    Good point

    If nobody has started anything by later this evening I will start a discussion in the saw-making section after doing some researchso it is plain to see .
