Product Description

Every hand-tool woodworker needs a minimum of three backsaws: Dovetail, Tenon, and Crosscut Saws. Rob has designed and manufactured two different professional crosscut saws; his Joinery Crosscut and Bench Crosscut to meet this requirement. 

Both of Robs crosscut saws are specialized for crosscutting applications. The Bench Crosscut Saw is designed for general crosscutting while his Joinery Crosscut Saw is designed for making finished, ready-to-glue joinery cuts.

Rob designed his Bench Crosscut Saw with a hefty .025" thick blade, aggressive 13 tpi teeth filed crosscut, and a minimal .002 inch set per side. The teeth, formed with a diamond-saw, slice cleanly and precisely through cross-grain wood fibers.

The minimal set creates a small kerf that guides the saw straight in the crosscut while the shallow 2 inch depth of blade (tooth-line to brass back) helps with stability while sawing to a line. The pistol grip handle conforms to your hand for a perfect, repeatable fit every time.

Product Details:

  • Size. Overall length (Toe to handle tip): 15-7/8 inches. Blade length (Toe to heal): 11 inches. Depth of blade under the back: 2 inches.
  • Weight: 570 grams (20.1 oz).
  • Blade. Made from .025 thick, spring steel.
  • Tooth Geometry. Filed crosscut at 13 teeth per inch (TPI) and a 0 degree tooth rake.
  • Set. Unlike most saw manufacturers who stamp out their saw teeth, leaving "dimples" in the blade, we individually cut out each of our saw teeth with a diamond saw. This allows us to maintain a very slight set of only .002 inch (per side), since we don't introduce that "dimple" onto the blade. This slight set produces a narrow .029 inch kerf that eliminates slop allowing the saw blade to accurately track in the saw kerf resulting in dead straight saw cuts with smooth ready to glue surfaces.
  • Brass Back: The brass back is 1/4" thick x 15/162 wide and is secured to the blade with peened and flushed copper pins. Not only does the brass look wonderful it imparts extra weight to the saw providing you a better balanced saw. This enables the saw to do the cutting work and helps you "feel" perpendicular.
  • Handle. Each of our "pistol grip" handles have memory enhancing carved finger recesses for a perfect and comfortable fit. A pair of brass split nuts secures the handle to the blade and the brass back. Our crosscut saws are available in ebony Swanstone, a resin-composite material reinforced with glass for durability. These are supplied with Regular sized handles, if you think you would like the Large handle, please feel free to contact us.
