Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Swiss 1906 Saw Back Bayonet

Hi Indy1919a4

The teeth was machined at the factory.
I read that the 1906 were modified Vetterli 1878 Saw Backs.
Use the blade and marry up with the Model 1889 handle
