As many of you know I’m taking a hand cut dovetail class this week at Kelly Mehler’s school in Kentucky. One of the guys has the Veritas dovetail saw and I got a chance to use it. This is the saw: http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx?c=2&p=61974&cat=1,42884
I already have the LN dovetail saw and it’s great. But for the money, the Veritas is every bit as good as the LN. In fact, side by side the Veritas has slightly less slop in the saw kerf than the LN. Very unscientific of course. It’s a little less tall than the LN – but it’s also lighter and easier to push. If I did not already have the LN I would have no problem buying this saw. So if you are thinking of buying a dovetail saw – give this saw a look see. Can’t see where you’d go wrong.
