Fret Saw Blades
A fret saw is only as good as the blades you use. I prefer a 12 point skip tooth blade for my fret saw.
A skip toothed blade is similar to a standard toothed blade, except that every other tooth is missing. This makes the space (gullet) between teeth is much wider than standard blades which allows the skip-toothed blade to hold and clear a lot more sawdust allowing the blade to cut faster.and stay cooler than standard blades.
Our blades come in a handy clear plastic storage tube so you have a nice place to keep your blades organized.
I tried and tried to use my old coping saw with handcut dovetails. Using the fret saw is SO much easier! The blades fit the saw kerf perfectly. Drop into the kerf, back up just a bit, and off you go.
These fret saw blades work great. They are thin enough to go in the dovetail saw kerf and do a great job. I have found if they break you can still use them again in Rob's fret saw even though you can't make as long a stroke.
These blades are the best for removing waste between the tails and pins. If Rob suggests it, then you can bank on it.
Excellent tool overall. It has saved me enough work already to earn a honored spot in my top tool box!
