Looking for the differences in all hand saws in general. The only one I really have a grasp on is a rip hand saw or panel saw because I own one. Steep flam with a good amount of set. The next one I’m wondering on is a cross cut saw. What is a is a suggested amount of rake flam and or set?
Then we move onto back saws. I’ve heard of and seen tenon saws, carcass saws, and dovetail saws. Only real difference I see is the size of them. I understand that the tenon saw is smaller the tenon saw is a bit deeper to accommodate the deep cut of the cheek, but the carcass saw I’m not really sure about other than it must be used to cut out the body of the project. Do all these saws have a basic rip saw set up?
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated,
