Lynx Log Saw Review By: I.Ball
Category: New Special Saws
Manufacturer: Thomas Flinn & Co.
Tool Type: Log Saw
This Lynx One Man Log Saw review covers the Log Saw made by Thomas Flinn
& Co (Sheffield).
The Lynx One Man Log Saw is a traditional saw used for cutting logs quickly by hand. The saw can also be used as a Two Man Saw.
This type of saw is traditionally used in forestry however it is now also popular amongst people looking to cut logs for their woodburners, people looking for a green form of tooling and people enjoying a nostalgic hands-on sawing experience.
The Lynx One Man Log Saw is available with the choice of two teeth type options:
- Great American Tooth
- Champion Tooth
The Great American Tooth version of the Lynx One Man Log Saw was the flagship version
of this One Man Log Saw which has been made since 2004, the Champion Tooth saw has
been made since about 2020.
The Lynx One Man Log Saw is available in two sizes:
The saw is controlled with the use of a Beech handle and Beech auxiliary front handle. The handle is secured to the blade with the use of four nuts.
The blade is marked with the Lynx etching 'E.Garlick & Son, Sawmakers, For Over A Centruy, Lynx Brand, Lynx, Made In Sheffield, England'.
This Log Saw can be resharpened again and again with the use of a large saw file.
This saw will be one which will be wanted to use again and again and will be handed down to many generations to come.
It is possible to buy a replacement auxiliary front, top handle for the One-Man Log Saw.
This replacement handle should fit most old One-Man Log Saws where a hole is drilled in the right position towards the top end of the blade at the front (nose) end.
'The auxiliary front handle secures to the saw by means of a steel fitting which allows it to be slid onto the blade, a specially shaped washer to line the blade and handle up correctly, and a rivet which slots through the hole in the blade. The handle is then tightened-up by turning the handle in a screwing motion until rigid.'
Usually supplied in a long, thin cardboard box.
