Graphical Construction Glossary >> Tools. >> Hand Tools >> Coping Saws
A small and cheap saw, but part of every carpenter's or joiner's tool kit. At the right is a shot of a saw cutting a scribe on a peice of wooden cornice or scotia. So far I have not seen any power tool that can do the same jobs as these saws. I have seen guys using electric jig saws and 100mm grinders etc. but they do not come close to using one of these for speed and accuracy.
A detail at the handle end of the blade, showing the direction of the blade. The teeth point to the handle and the cutting is done on the pull stroke.
