Introduction:A hand saw is a hand saw, but there are several types of hand saws. Here is a list of hand saws that you might not know about if you do not know your hand saws.
The crosscutting saw is a saw with a finer toothed blade. It is made with this finer toothed blade so that it will be able to go across the grain while it is cutting.
This is the reason why this saw is called a crosscutting saw.
This is an old fashioned saw. There are not very many people who use these saws anymore, because we have power saws now thanks to our world of advanced technology.
The rip saw cuts with the grain. It has a coarser toothed blade.
That is why this is called a rip saw, because when you are ripping the wood, you are cutting with the grain.
The drywall saw is used for cutting drywall. It is made to stab through drywall and cut out circles for things such as recessed lighting.
It is also made to cut out squares for electrical outlets.
The drywall saw blade is a short, stiff, pointed saw blade with coarse teeth.
The coping saw has a real skinny blade. This was made for more exact cutting. The coping saw is a saw with a frame and a deep throat.
The jamb saw is actually for cutting bottoms of door jambs. For instance, when you install tile.
In order to fit the new tile under the door jamb
and to cut the casing. It has a flexible, fine toothed blade.
