Hi Pete,Pete Maddex":1fhuw2ck said:Hi, Gazpal
I always struggled with Eclipse saws in thicker wood, the blades curving like a washing line and having to twist the saw more than needed to change direction. My bowsaw coping saw works much better than an Eclipse.
That bit of wood was cut at speed not paying attention to accuracy and cleanness.
One could tell the timber was cut without particular attention to accuracy or tidyness, although it's still possible to cut at speed and with attention to detail.
With heavier/thicker materials I tend to up the ante - tool-wise - and move onto my bow/turning saws using blades matching the degree of finesse or agression required in the cut. With coping saws I tend to set the blade to match variations in cutting direction and let the blade do the work.
