(It even includes some blade making techniques!)
I used a piece of old bandsaw blade, 1in wide, which was too chewed up to be repaired. It's good steel - springy but holds an edge (see: SAW.) And this material is FREE if you know where to look.
I like to sew, so the seam ripper is a must for cutting out stitching mistakes. Nice to make my own.
I made this at TechShop Detroit. I'm a big enthusiast. Here, check it out: www.techshop.ws
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Scrap bandsaw blade
- Markers/carbide scribe for marking the outline of your seam ripper (Don't hesitate to free-hand! That's what I do.)
- Square/straight edge in case your free-hand ain't so free
- Gloves for handling the blade
- Angle grinder with abrasive cutoff wheel
- Disc sander
