Knew Concepts Woodworker's Aluminum Fretsaw
The innovative truss structure of this American-made fretsaw's frame allows it to be extremely rigid, while also making the saw incredibly light and easy to handle.
The saw's unique blade mounting system allows the blade to be swiveled either 45 degrees right or left, or else seat firmly at 90 degrees for straight-ahead cutting.
(Angling the blade at 45 degrees allows you to move the back of the frame out of the way to allow sawing the baseline of a dovetail without frame interference.)
The saw's Cam-Lever tensioning system allows the blade to be brought into tension instantly, while its knurled fine adjustment screw allows the tension to be set precisely where you want it.
Saw comes with a single #7, skip tooth - 15 TPI blade.
Knew Concepts Fret Saws use premium 130mm (~5 inch) scroll or fret type blades with plain ends. They are compatible with our Premium German Scroll Saw Blades and our Olson Scrollsaw blades. Other blades may not be compatible with Knew Concepts Fret Saws. A #5 12.5tpi skip tooth blade is recommended for removing dovetail waste.
The extremely popular 5" model weighs a wispy 4.9 ounces.
The titanium version of this saw is no longer available. It has been replaced
by the Titanium Birdcage Saw pictured below.
