Rockler Universal Z-Saw
This 240 mm saw is the same saw that we use with our AngleMag. We like it because it’s good, inexpensive, and works like a charm. Japanese dozuki saws are usually .3mm thick and have a steel back to give them rigidity. This saw is slightly thicker, .5mm, and doesn’t need a rigid back. This means it will smoothly work with the AngleMag without any interference. It’s also a good inexpensive general-purpose cutoff saw. It works on the pull stroke, like all Japanese saws. The teeth are a combination rip and crosscut for general work. Because this saw is extra-thick, has combination teeth and doesn’t have a rigid back, it’s great for jobs like sawing plywood panels, where the stronger blade and the absence of a steel rib lets you cut into a large panel without interference. The saw cuts a little slower than a thinner saw, but it works perfectly with the AngleMag, and we like the flexibility to be able to saw more deeply than with a saw with a steel rib. Replaceable blade. Approx. 16 tpi in a varaible pattern. Made in Japan.
