I am keen to have a go at making some things with hand tools only and was wondering about buying a new saw.
Lots of articles I have read talk about hand or panel saws being old, or restored, and needing sharpening from time to time, and I see pictures of lovely old pieces of equipment.
Most joiners will just go to B&Q or Screwfix and buy a new saw for £5.99 then throw it when the job is done.
Is this because modern manufacturing makes perfectly good disposable saws and that is where I should look, or is it still best to buy something prettier and longer lasting that needs care and maintenance.
I understand the difference between cross-cut and rip saws and I am happy to buy modern tools if they are good enough.
Discuss hand tools here, its quieter and less dusty than the other sections.
