Veritas Carcass Saws
These saws carry forward the same design principles used to develop our innovative dovetail saws, adopting selected traits of traditional carcass saws and rendering them using innovative materials and modern manufacturing methods.
Typically used to cut joints in drawer runners, dividers, and stretchers (the framework or carcass of a piece), they are well balanced, maneuverable, and scaled for smaller work than a tenon saw. Available in rip and crosscut versions. The 12 tpi rip saw has a 10° rake angle and an included angle of 60° for efficient cutting parallel to the grain.
The 14 tpi crosscut saw has a rake angle of 15°, an included angle of 60°, and teeth filed with alternating 15° bevels so they sever wood fibers rather than tear them. The teeth on each have relatively minimal set, at only 0.003" per side. Each saw has a molded spine that incorporates stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness, and an advanced polymer binder. An over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt create a solid one-piece blade/spine/mount assembly. A single brass fastener secures the bobbing handle.
The open-grip handle, made larger than those of classic carcass saws, permits a comfortable, secure grip. The high-carbon steel blade, 11" long and 0.02" thick, has a cut depth of about 2W. Each saw is 16-V8" long overall and weighs just under a pound.
