Woodworkers Fretsaws by Knew Concepts
Made in USA, these fret saws are designed for quickly cutting waste from hand-cut dovetails. Their innovative truss-like frames are light-weight and far easier to use than their predecessors - the traditional jewelers fret saws.
This light-weight but stiff frame reduces the occurrence of blade breakage and the thumb-screw blade clamps make it a cinch to install a blade. Gone is the awkward tensioning procedure associated with traditional fret saws. A simple cam lever easily tensions the blade in a second and you're ready to put the saw to use.
The unique blade mounting system allows the blade to be swiveled 45 degrees right or left and a detent locks the blade at center. This is quickly accomplished by rotating the cam tensioner to release the tension, then retention the saw blade.
We offer these saws with 3in. and 5in. throats. The 3in. size weighing 4.4 oz. is perfect for hand-cut dovetails while the 5in. model weighing 5.2 oz. will accommodate coping and larger fret work while still doing a superb job of removing waste from hand-cut dovetails.
Saws are furnished with Swiss made Grobet 15 tpi skip tooth blades which are .015 thick. We offer replacement Grobet Pegas blades below.
