How to select the ideal saw tool for your DIY-project
Many types of saws exist. As briefly mentioned, you can find saws that are generally suited for various specific tasks. Your choice of saw tool is not as simple as simply deciding whether you need a hand saw, hacksaw or something different. Still, there are other factors to account for as well if you want to ensure an optimal result and make the tool work with you and not against you.
For precision work or aggressive cutting?
The saw’s teeth play a central role in the type of cut you make. It all depends on how many teeth the saw has. Most saw blades are rated via teeth per inch (TPI), which range from 2 to 32. The higher the number, the more teeth your saw has. Saws with higher TPI ratings are ideal for precise, smooth cuts. Saws with lower TPI ratings produce a rougher cut but are quicker at cutting through the material.
Find a fitting saw for the material
Your saw naturally needs to be able to cut through the material in question without any unnecessary challenges. Your decision here mostly depends on whether you need to saw wood, metal, plastic or perhaps concrete. In any case, it is important to ensure that the saw is recommended for the material you need to cut through. That way, you avoid damaging the saw blade and wasting a lot of time and effort on getting nowhere.
Consider ergonomic design features
When working on larger DIY projects, having a saw that is comfortable to work with and feels natural in your hand can make an important difference in the long run. As such, go for a saw with an ergonomic handle, especially when choosing a handsaw, hacksaw or backsaw.
Tips for making precise bevel cuts
A common challenge occurs when you must have two pieces of wood join together at an angle - a so-called bevel cut. Making a completely precise cut is necessary in this case. To make a precise bevel cut, you must:
Place the bevel angle up against the angle you want to measure and make your board fit.
Lock the bevel angle, and keep it on top of the piece of wood you want to cut.
Mark the angle on the wood with a pencil, and then begin to saw.
If you want to ensure maximum precision with your cut, you can opt for a mitre saw.
