For years, I have had difficulty cutting a straight, perpendicular line with a handsaw. No matter what method I tried, the cut was neither straight nor perpendicular to the stock, most often both. I had got to the point where I would pull out my circsaw, jigsaw, or fire up the table saw for all cuts, a real pain. Then, a couple of months ago, I purchased the Irwin #213104 Dovetail/Detail Saw. I feel pretty certain that I didn’t suddenly develop the talent to saw a straight line, so I must credit the saw – whether it is the size, the fact it is a pull saw, or whatever, I now find it easy to make a straight, true cut.
- Cuts on pull stroke
- 22 tpi
- Blade Length 7-1/4” (replaceable)
- Primary uses – Flush cutting dowels and any fine detail cut (User example – Interior trim contractor/detail work around windows, fine woodworker)
At approximately $10.00, I don’t feel anyone can go wrong purchasing this saw. It is very convenient to use, whether cutting off dowels or trimming the end of a board. It is a valued tool in my arsenal now!
