trust me these are great saws. they cut a super thin kerf and they cut on the pull. get one with a stiff back. as far as chisels go, I like marples, but any chisel will do fine if you keep them super sharp. I use a tormec system for that purpose. good luck and have fun

-- What this world needs is a little more sawdust on the floor.

Thanks mate, appreciate your time in telling me that, I get to Japan quite a lot, I will definitely pick up a Dozuki saw, and will explore the Tormec system of sharpening, that is new to me also.

Just wondering about a nice simple and effective 1st project for dovetailing, any ideas?

Have your say...
