Exactly what you'll expect
19 Dec 2015

" A good coping saw for the money.
Handle is comfortable, it's easy to use. The blades are good and comes with spares - in the ideal 15 teeth per inch you want. Cuts through the wood nicely with a smooth finish. The blades seem tough and I've not used a full blade yet so leads me to think it will last a while, although I've only used on soft and medium wood. The curves or straights can be cut easily with good control. I bought for coping skirting mostly so needed the change of direction this offers.
The tightening of the blade is operated from the handle itself - the handle has a threaded end. Ensure this is very hand tight otherwise the frame of the saw will move when you cut. I did have to stop in the beginning as I thought it was tight enough but you really got to keep it tight then you're good to go.
Good versatile saw for the money. "

easy to use gives a clean cut
25 May 2015
By
, Central Scotland
" I got this for cutting holes for sockets in skirting board. it's easy to use and gives a clean cut with no splintering.
Because the angle is adjustable once you've started it's easy to go round all four sides of the hole without removing and refixing the blade.
You can put the blade in either way round so it cuts on the 'down' or the 'up' depending on your application.
Removing and refixing the blade is a little fiddly. "

Coping saw
19 Apr 2012
By
, Cardigan
" Compfortable handle and a deep neck allowing plenty of room for clearance. Another really good feature is the notch to select angle of blade making sure that there is no twist in the blade ensuring longer life. Many good and improved features including spare blades, a truly quality product. "

Don't buy for cut-outs
13 Feb 2016
By
, Camberley
" If you're planning to buy this to saw cut-outs then forget it. There is no simple blade release mechanism and so to release the blade you have to unscrew the handle and even after that the "bow" exerts enough force for it to need bending to remove the blade. Now try doing that with the blade threaded through a pilot hole - it's a nightmare.
I suppose if your work doesn't involve regular disconnecting and reconnecting the blade then you might find it usable, but even doing this I found the blade rotating on its own volition.
Shall steer well clear in the future.

Poor quality

" Expensive but poor quality manufacture. Handle snapped off when tensioning the blade. Subjective I know, but I don't feel I was over tightening. Just cheap metal screw casting. "
