great blog here :-)
I have a question to all becourse I´m a little confused about the handle on some panelsaws
and how the angles on some of them is nearly 90 degrees or over
and others is more like the open pistolgrib closer to 45 degree
I can understand the angle to bee 45-60 degree
but when you use a panelsaw you want to have your cutting angle thrugh the wood to be low
as possiple to avoid tearout on the backside but the saws with 90 – 100 degree handle
force you to raise your saw more and will give bigger tearouts on the backside … so whats the point
I hope you get my point…... but look at Britts comment with the pictures of the spear and jacskson saw
and the picture of the Distons …. and see the different in the angle on the grib
I just don´t get the meening of why the distons have the high angle on the grib ….......... help me to understand why it should be better

take care
