Topic tags/keywords: veritas dovetail saw dovetail saw dovetails

Upon getting advice on this thread I decided that I would purchase this dovetail saw from Veritas. I got it in yesterday from Highland Hardware. I can’t tell you how much I love the feel and the finish of this saw. It feels like it is made for my hand and is very well balanced. It is rip filed and has 14tpi and I may even get the 20tpi saw for more delicate work.

The saw feels like it was made for my hand is very well balanced.

I think that this saw is beautiful.

This weekend I plan on having a marathon dovetail cutting session with this saw in order to learn more fully how to cut dovetails more accurately and efficiently and to also get rid of some bad dovetail sawing habits that I picked up during my earlier woodworking which was mostly self taught. I’ll let you know if my dovetail cutting marathon was successful. Thanks for looking at my beautiful new Veritas dovetail saw.

As Ed McMahon used to say: ”You are correct, sir!” ... I have one of these and it is a terrific tool.

I bought the same saw a little over 6 months ago and I love it. The handle is very comfortable, it cuts awesome, it only take a few strokes to bottom out the saw, cuts nice and straight. . .and best of all I paid around $65.00 for mine and it’s just as good as Rob Cosman’s $249.99 dovetail saw for a fraction of the price. . .It must be the handmade box that you get with Rob’s saw that makes it soooo much more expensive . .Big deal

What’s not to like about a new tool. Very nice.
