I need to replace the blade on a bow saw/bucksaw.
It looks to me like the existing blade is affixed with a rivet, not a removable pin or bolt.
(Both ends of the new blade look the same: two holes.)
I just want to make sure I'm not having a brain fart.
Is the only way to replace the blade to drill-out the rivet and replace it with a bolt & nut? If so, that seems like a bad design.
I ask because I'm at cottage in a somewhat remote location, so it will be an ordeal to scrounge up a drill, the right size drill bit, and a bolt/nut. I want to make sure I’m doing it right before I go through the hassle of modifying the saw by adding a bolt.
The brand name of the saw is Benchmark from Home Hardware: https://www.homehardware.ca/en/24-bow-saw/p/1062281?page=search-results%20page
