I wanted to draw attention to these new saws from Veritas because they are available for the next couple of weeks at a low price. I currently use one of their dovetail saws and am very happy with it. I haven’t experienced these new saws, but at half the price of the equivalent Lie Nielsen saws and if they are up to the usual high Veritas standard, they would be a good option if you are looking to get a new rip or crosscut saw (or both for less than $90 each).10 December 2013 at 4:06 am #23452Greg MerrittParticipant
Dang it! My christmas budget is starting to take a beating. I’ve been waiting on these saws to come out for several months. I have the dovetail and carcass saw, both rip, and have been very satisfied with them. Sometimes I need a little more depth of cut.

Will you ever get the chance of them again at that price. As you said you could do with them, I have been good to me for this Christmas, I think you should do the same.
Go for it buddy 😉10 December 2013 at 6:23 am #23459dbornParticipant
Dang it! Too like using the dovetail and carcass saw, and wish I had more depth.. Good thing its we have until 12/26 to decide. If, you had to choose one, what would you choose? I’m thinking rip.10 December 2013 at 8:34 am #23466JayParticipant
I was just looking for a tenon saw with some depth a couple days ago and couldn’t find anything lower priced than the LN. I’m happy to see these… even at $120 they are $50 cheaper than the LN. Thanks for the link, RL.10 December 2013 at 9:21 am #23468Serhiy D’yachyshynParticipant
Well… guys its a lot of excitement about those new saws.I don’t have chance to try them but if any one interested I will be in the local Lee Valley store this Thursday I can try them. I don’t have any plans to buy them, my humble opinion is…. I really don’t know why they did it this dimensions??? 16″ long blade and 9 tpi rip to coarse for small tenons, 12 tpi crosscut with this parameters 16″ to long ,up to 4″ deep cut its not a panel saw.. don’t know, I cant see reason why they made it. You can buy any old 12″,14″ saw for half of the price include shipping. Just my opinion, I can be wrong, still if any one interested before placing orders let me know i will try them if they have them in the stock this Thursday.

I’d go with the rip saw if I had to choose just one. I would find it easier to refile a rip saw into a crosscut saw than the other way round if I changed my mind.10 December 2013 at 1:36 pm #23492dbornParticipant
Serhiy you bring up good points, especially about looking for used first.10 December 2013 at 1:51 pm #23493JayParticipant
Serhiy, if you can get your hands on that 9 pt rip saw I would like to hear your thoughts on the quality. Thanks.10 December 2013 at 2:33 pm #23506David PerrottParticipant
They do look cool. Last thing I need is more saws.I have the rip and cross cut carcass saw but never use them. I like the weight of my “old” saws better. I wouldn’t have a specific use for it. I would rather have a short panel saw like PS.10 December 2013 at 7:04 pm #23542STEVE MASSIEParticipant
I do have their carcass saws and they work great, I am not particularly found of the looks but can’t knock how they work. I personally prefer older vintage saws myself.
