Knew Concepts Fret Saws

Description

Details

Knew Concepts Fret Saws are a striking departure from the traditional hand saw design. Engineered to be lightweight and easy to control, these saws are stable and allow minimal blade deflection when in use. From dovetails to marquetry details, Knew Concepts fret saws bring an array of convenient features that make them faster to set up and easier to handle than any other fret saw you've used before.

Starting with blade installation, the Knew Concepts Fret Saw features a quick-release camming tension lever and fine adjustment screw. Set the tension just right one time and you can change blades repeatedly without having to re-tension. The spring-loaded blade clamps allow for 45° rotation in either direction, so you can do off-axis cuts right or left handed on any project. In addition, blades are held in place by easy to set clamp knobs. No frustrating needle threading like with other fret saws - just slide the blade into the receiver and tighten the knob.

The Mk4 8" Fret Saw sports an even stronger frame geometry designed to pull 50-60 pounds of tension, making for even less vibration than before. The swivel blade clamps are also able to rotate a full 360° with click stops every 45°.

When you buy a Knew Concepts Fret Saw you'll allow yourself to work more efficiently without sacrificing the quality of your craftsmanship in the process. Now that's what we call progress.
