WELCOME TO 2012. IF YOU RESOLVED TO GET A DOVETAIL SAW, YOU ARE IN LUCK!
I bought this Lee Valley Dovetail Saw back in 2005 for $52.50. If you look closely and use a little imagination, you can read “Lee Valley” on the blade. The dovetail saw is made in France and has an 8″ blade with a traditional folded brass spine. (The Lee Valley part number is 33T0501, but the item is no longer listed on their website.)
The teeth have a wider set than I would prefer and the saw has a slight tendency to drift to the left. Resetting the teeth would likely solve both issues.
The Lee Valley saw cuts neither as quickly, cleanly or easily as the Veritas saw also shown in the picture below.
If you would like to add the Lee Valley saw to your tool chest, leave a comment below, indicating your interest before midnight of January 1. I will then draw a winner at random. Even if you don’t get this saw, remember that this is only one of the MANY things I want to give away.
