Lie-Nielsen Dovetail Saw
Since dovetailing is a ripping operation, where the kerf is running with the grain, Lie-Nielsen's dovetail saw has its teeth filed to a rip profile. With 15 points per inch, this saw strikes an ideal balance between surface finish and speed. Teeth are set at .003" (.076mm) per side for a .026" (.66mm) kerf — narrow for straight cutting. Length, including handle, is 15" (38.1cm), with an overall height of 4¼" (10.79cm). Usable blade dimensions are 10" (25.4cm) long by 1-5/8" (4.12cm) deep (.020" (.5mm) thick).
Lie-Nielsen will resharpen this saw for $15, including return shipping (within the U.S.).
