Hand Saws - Cross Cut, Rip Cut & Universal Cut
- Hand saws are designed for cutting wood. Todays hand saws are also know as toolbox saws and or short cut saws.
- When cutting across the wood grain a finer tooth generally produces a smoother cut than courser teeth.
- Hand saws have teeth shaped like knife points to crumble out wood between cuts.
- Twenty years ago commonly used crosscut saws were 12-points per inch and rip saws 5-1/2 points per inch. Today finding a hand saw under 8 points per inch is difficult.
- 9 to 10 points per inch universal blades are the most popular and considered general purpose
- Blade lengths used to range from 20 to 28 inches, today although 24 and 26 are still available, 15 to 20 inch are the best sellers.
- Hand saws can also be used to cut paneling and plywood.
