Topic tags/keywords: tyzack dovetail saw saws

I never heard of Tyzack saws until I did some eBaying. I’m shopping for a good dovetail saw, but would like one I don’t have to spend several days making useable. Does anyone have any experience with the Tyzack dovetail saw?

no personal experience, but I’m given to understanding they’re a decent saw.

Tyzack is to saws what Record is to hand planes – not the name youo’d use for the swanky centrefold money shot, but made to the same standards …. and in terms of performance: indistinguishable from the dead posh ones.

I haven’t used their DT saw, but I did have one of their tenon saws a while back and she was a beaut!! Cut like buttah :) Only reason I got rid of it was because I ran into a guy who collected the Tyzacks and he REALLY wanted it.

Good call on the Lee Valley saws Ken.

I’m getting the following from Lee Valley. I wanted the steel backed
pull saw as well.

I visited one of the Lee Nielsen events and tried out their dovetail saws. I then ordered their dovetail saw with the thin-plate blade (0.015 in). I’ve enjoyed using it on a couple of dovetail projects already. It cuts on the push, not on the pull. I think they retail for around $125.
