Inlay Saws, Flush Cutting Saws, Guitar Saw

Saws without offset like the inlay saw made by THOS. FLINN or HISHIKA are used in the main for cutting inlay and veneers. For the tiniest and most delicate of dovetails, there is the jeweller's saw. It has no offset and must be guided with a steady hand and not too much pressure, or it will be in danger of buckling. Do not attempt any deep cuts with it. If the saw has once bent the cut will not run true. But treat it well and it will reward you with excellent quality cuts.

You need to scroll down to see our flush cutting saws for rapid trimming of plugs and dowels. The British saws and all inlay saws can be sharpened when they need it.

VERITAS Flush Cutting Saw Used for the rapid trimming of plugs and dowels flush with a surface, the Veritas flush-cutting saw can be used anywhere you want to cut off a projection without damaging the surrounding or adjoining face.

The thin, flexible blade can be pressed flush to the surface, yet is rigid enough for good control. The 26 tpi Japanese tooth-pattern blade cuts aggressively on the pull stroke, but because the teeth have no set, they can travel back and forth across the adjacent surface without scratching or marking it. The lack of set also means the saw can be used in a right- or left-handed orientation, and the cut has no tendency to drift, allowing you to use the saw for other fine-cutting applications.

Total length 285 mm
Blade length 120 mm
Pitch 1 mm/26 TPI

PAX Guitar Saw (Fret Wire Saw) by Thos. Flinn For cutting fret slots in guitar fingerboards. Through drilled holes allow to mount a wooden depth stop. A more simple way to control the cut depth is the VERITAS saw depth stop, which is suitable for a wide range of saws too. The blade cuts on the pull stroke! The teeth are slightly set - bended alternate outwards to either side, making the cut wider than the blade. The kerf width can be slightly reduced by using a Japanese Waterstone grit 1000 of 1/100 mm to 5/100 mm. Take care to keep the offset absolutely equal to both sides.
Blade thickness 0.5 mm
Kerf 0.022 - 0.023 inch (0.56 - 0.58 mm)
Blade length 10 inch (250 mm)
