Dovetail Saw with folded brass back with Argentine Lignum Vitae handle
Alamo Toolworks Dovetail Saw. Medium weight brass folded back, not milled with a glued in blade like most other makers thus if you ever damage the blade or wear it out it is relatively simple to replace the blade. This saw has a 0.015" thick saw plate that is toothed 16 points per inch. The teeth have a 12 degree rake angle and are filed rip. The tooth line is 8 1/2 inches, overall length of the saw is 14 1/2 inches. The depth of cut is 2 1/8". This saw is handled in Palo Santo, otherwise known as Argentine lignum vitae. The handle is not resin-infused because this wood is naturally so tough you can make nails out of it.. The brass saw bolts are mounted in hand reamed mounting holes just large enough to admit the screw shanks to ensure a tight lockup of the handle to the blade. The saw weighs 11.37 oz./ 322 grams. 100% Handmade in Texas.
