Hand Saw : Use the right one for the specific task


Have you ever used a hand saw or when is the last time you used one? Did the saw worked smoothly without sweating or you really struggled to make it work? Whether the saw caught the wood easily or trimmed the wood badly? Too much of question. Yes! But the answer lies here. The perfectness of the carpentry work depends on which kind of hand saw you are using, is it sharp or not, is the saw right for the job, is it rust resistant. Many people struggle through when using the hand saw due to wrong selection. Trust me even the worst hand saw could not cut a butter!

Choosing a sharp blade saw saves your time and effort to cut the wood. It will also make your work accurate with little effort. Below are main two hand saws which we generally use for carpentry work at home. Check out the features and uses to identify the ideal one for your job:

Panel Saw/Crosscut Saw : Both are similar except that crosscut saw has smaller teeth which are used for minute detail work. Panel saw is used for cutting across the grain and has 7-9 teeth per inch and blade of approximate 24 inch.

Rip Saw : It has longer body with blade length around 28 inch with approximate 7 teeth point per inch meant for cutting timber along the grain.
