Guest Author Jules Lawrence! How to Transport Your Saw

Now here’s an irony which has amused me for some time- how to transport one’s beloved saw or saws. Firstly you want the things safe and protected, ideally with a handle which makes them easy to carry. Secondly- in these days of paranoia the saw cold easily be construed as an offensive weapon &, at best, not drawing attention to it is certainly a good move.

Hence- a good, solid case is the order of the day. Now – if your set up is like mine, its long, longer than will fit in most off-the-shelf cases, carry boxes, photography bags etc. However- there is one source of a really nice range of options. Here’s the irony- gun or bow cases from sports shops. In an effort to make my saws less intimidating they now live in a compound bow archery case! Yeah- high impact archery is nowhere near as dangerous as a decidedly blunt 32” piece of steel! I laugh, but on a more serious note it has allowed me to check my gear in on flights without issue and that’s got to be deal breaker….



Jules from the south coast of the UK here. I’m, for want of a better term, a rock multi-instrumentalist specializing in various wind instruments- saxes, flute, harmonics, as well as the musical saw.
