WOOD magazine review

Rockler Dozuki Dovetail Saw

Review Summary

This saw features a fine 25-teeth-per-inch (tpi) pitch, and produces a pencil-thin kerf (less than 1⁄64" thick). With its rigid back, it tracks true, although the stiffener limits the depth of cut to about 2".
(When crosscutting, though, we doubled that capacity by cutting 1/4" deep on all four sides of a thick workpiece, as if defining the shoulders of a tenon, then completed with full-depth cuts.) We hand-cut a few drawer dovetails using the Rockler Dozuki Dovetail Saw and it easily stayed on the layout lines, even cutting diagonal to the grain without wandering. When used to fine-tune the fit of some interior millwork, this saw excelled in both crosscutting and ripping. And we found we could cut close-fitting notches in the molding more accurately—and in less time—than with a power jigsaw.
