If you keep'em oiled, and reserved to lightweight jobs, as they're intended to, they'll last a lifetime. I like these saws for nut and saddle work. I can cut gauged notches for each string.
Veneer cutting and straight precision cuts, like neck joints are easily done with these saws.
These saws are the best I have ever used. They have made my work of restoring Violins a bit easier and a lot more fun. I truly enjoy using them in my work.
A really handy set of gauged saws which allows for accurate initial cutting of nut slots and more! Highly recommended.
Works well to make the initial slot if I use a guard of some sort like stacked feller gauges so I don't go too deep.
I use the .020 saw to cut fret slots, it is my favorite saw for cutting my own fret slots by hand. I've tried other saws, and they made a slot too wide. I also use this saw to clean slots out after using a radius sanding block on the fretboard.
I bought the 0.010" (0.25mm) one because i needed a saw with the thinnest blade possible to make fine cuts. I do not use it for the nuts but I use it for all the cuts where I don't want to remove too much material. You must have it
