Coping Saw Blades

#233030 by dusty » Thu Apr 20, 2017 8:48 am

I have just broken the very last blade that I have for an old, old coping saw. This was one of my first hand tools. I received it as a gift when I was about 12. Age is a guess but I was a Tenderfoot Scout working on a project when it was given to me.

I have not done an exhaustive search but I have looked and I can find coping saw blades with looped ends absolutely no where. Blades with pins are readily available.

If any of you know where I can purchase 6" looped end coping saw blades please let me know.

Thank you. I would jump on those except for the fact that they are rusted. These blades are easy enough to break without help from rust.

it would be as easy to pick up a new one with blades ,they are pretty in expensive and some of the new blades are better then the older ones, ,, thats what I did a few years back.

Thank you for the effort but this is not the object.

I have this very old coping saw that, for nostalgic reasons, I want to keep (and use). It does not accept coping saw blades with pins. It uses coping saw blades with loops. Blades with loops on the ends are now very hard to find. Most (if not all) manufacturers have converted to pins.

I came across this coping saw while I was cleaning out all of the hidden storage areas in my shop. Unfortunately, I have no blades for it.

The term for those blades is "Lock Loop Ends" and I still have one pack of them. Trojan brand made by Parker MFG Co. Worcester Mass 01613.

Searching for them did give a link but it is hard to see what ends they really have, the description sound right any way but now Stanley.

A call could clear it up.

Are you sure the pin ones will not work? I have a really old all metal single loop version which is quite old but the pins do work in it.

This is the end right?
