Pebaro Fretsaw Automatic

This fretsaw from Pebaro does away with the fiddly blade installation and tensioning usual in these saws. The handle folds down and relaxes the tension on the blade. The two levers turn 360 degrees to release the old blade, you pop the new one in, and the levers are retightened to clamp it firmly in place. The handle is then pivoted back to tension the blade. You can adjust the position of the levers to keep the saw's throat clear by pulling them straight out, which disengages them from the tensioning screws. Instructions and notes for lefthanders!

Fretsaws with deep or shallow bows?
Fretsaws with a deep bow allow one to work on much larger pieces of wood. It is important to note that for small children, a large bow can make it difficult to maintain the saw's balance when cutting. So we recommend the smaller saws made by Grobet for children.

Thick or thin sawblades?

A thin blade makes a finer cut. But bigger blades will generally last longer because they are thicker.

LIFESAW Mini Kataba

This saw is designed for cross and diagonal cuts in dry wood, such as one might use for light construction or cabinet work (not in the garden). Like all Japanese-style saws, this one cuts on the pull stroke. This permits a relatively thin saw blade, and so an equally thin kerf. All of this means faster cutting with less work, and less sawdust. The saw is fitted with a curved plastic grip and is delivered in a plastic and cardboard box. It is also an excellent saw for children, under supervision of course!
Blade length 175 mm
Pitch 1.4 mm (18 TPI)
