I used these saws when making a couple of bleached bone nuts. I even used one to cut the excess side material off. They certainly got the job done, but I think they should be Pull-Cut saws...That would put these bad boys over the top!
Bought these to get the string slots in the nut started and they've done great at just that. Big time savers in the shop. I saw down to just short of my mark for final depth and then file the rest of the way.
I have the .010 and it is very good, wish it were a pull saw not a push.
The perfect tool for perfect results, finally! I just need to make handy stand for them now. Cheers!
I use the .010" saw, and it works well for everyday tasks such as trimming bindings, purfling, backstrip, inletting kerfed linings, etc. in addition to nut work. To make this a pull saw, pull the blade off of the spine with pliers or whatnot. Be extra careful to not bend or break the blade but once you are able to pull the spine off, simply reverse it and pound it (carefully) back into the spine, and now you have a pull saw without affecting the function of the saw. It will need sharpening eventually as the saw doesn't come that sharp out of the box... some time with a saw file and it's good as new.
I bought a set of these saws to cut the string slots for the brass nut on my project. They did the job flawlessly. I would recommend these saws to anyone. Finish off slot with the gauged files.
we have the set @ 4seasons pickups and makes repair jobs much eyser
If have tested them on several nuts. Good cut. Fast and easy working. Well worth the money paid. Normally I prefer a push cut but with these saws I think pull is better. Not for control but the risk for buckling is higher when you push the saw. I have made a second handle which can be attached to the saws with 2 little clamp bolts.
I would have given these five stars if the cut would have been pull instead of draw style, but these made quick work of the slots, allowing me to get more quickly to the slotting files I use.
For you guys who wish it were a pull-cut saw:
Cut off the existing handle and epoxy a wooden handle of your own design on the other end. Anyone who can make a guitar should be able to tackle that simple task.
