Crosscut vs rip cut
Crosscut vs. Rip cut

Two saws that look the same ….but are very different. Why

Rip saw vs crosscut saw
Rip Saw vs. Crosscut Saw

  • The answer is in the teeth.

Crosscut Saw

Rip Saw

Rip saw
Rip Saw

  • Coarse tooth saw used to make straight cuts in lumber with the grain of the wood.

  • The teeth are in a straight line so the saw does not drift with the grain of the wood.

Rip Cut With Wood Grain

Crosscut saw
Crosscut Saw

  • Crosscut saws are designed for making straight cuts across the grain in wood.

  • The teeth are sharpened at an angle and beveled to a point, allowing them to cut cleanly without splintering.

  • Teeth are in a zig-zag pattern.

Crosscut –Across the

Wood Grain

Keyhole compass saw
Keyhole & Compass Saw

  • Keyhole and compass saws are made to cut curved and straight sided holes.

  • Blade comes to a sharp point.

  • Since they have a narrow, unsupported blade, keyhole and compass saws have a tendency to bend when cutting.

Coping saw
Coping Saw

  • Narrow steel blade mounted in a frame.

  • Used to make intricate, curved cuts.

  • The blade is usually positioned with the teeth pointing towards the handle and cuts on the pull stroke.

Hack saw
Hack Saw

  • Tensioned frame that holds a fine toothed blade.

  • Designed to cut hard materials like metal, plastic, tile, and glass.

  • A close quarter or mini hacksaw is a smaller version with an open frame that is made for cutting in tight spaces.

Drywall saw
Drywall Saw

  • Coarse saws are used for cutting drywall or wallboard.

  • Wideblade for straight cuts

  • Narrow keyhole blades

  • for making cutouts

  • electrical outlets and

  • switches.

  • The sharp point of the cutout saw allows the blade to plunge directly through wallboard.
