I swore on a stack of “Mechanicks Exercises” that I’d stop writing about coping saws. It’s not healthy, and I know that.
Yup. Knew Concepts is making a coping saw, and the tool is only a few weeks away from being available to customers. At $149, it might be the most expensive coping saw on the market. But if it lives up to its potential, it might finally be the coping saw I’ve always wanted.
I bought the saw at full retail and spent a couple hours during the weekend messing around with it between teaching and attending classes. It weighs almost nothing thanks to its aluminum frame. The blade-locking mechanism is just what you’d expect from Knew Concepts: It’s a cam lock, and you can adjust the tension using a brass thumbscrew.
