Veritas Dovetail Saws
The blades of the Veritas dovetail saws have 14 or 20 rip-cut teeth per inch. The 14 tpi model is most efficient on stock thicker than 1/2"; the less aggressive cut of the 20 tpi version is best for stock under 1/2" thick. The teeth, set 0.003" per side, have a rake angle of 14° and an included angle of 60°.
Each saw has a spine molded from an advanced material incorporating stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness, and a polymer resin binder. An over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt creates a solid one-piece blade/spine/mount assembly. A single brass fastener secures the bubinga handle. Made of high-carbon steel, the blade of each is 9-1/4" long and 0.020" thick, with a cut depth of about 1-9/16". Both are 14-1/4" long overall.
