    Hi matthew,

    Lie Nielsen is my choice of saw, price is about the same, or cheaper than the adria. I started with the rip and added the crosscut later.

    But as the dovetail is rip cut, you could start with the crosscut

    Cheers Ken 😉

    thanks for your reply. the problem for me is im in ireland and there is no stores that sell these type of saws and the stores in britain for some reason have about a 30 pound delivery charge which is about 40 euro and im still in school so i dont have a lot of money . the shop i get these in has about 5 euro delivery

    Yeah 30 pound delivery is a lot of money. The adria saws are very good, and if you can get them for 5 euro delivery, that would be my choice also.

    Let us know how you get on 🙂

    If you have limited number of saws, go with rip for the ones that are 12 or greater tpi. They can crosscut without any problems. You dont even need the small dovetail saw to start out. It does make cutting very fine cuts easier, but if you are on a budget you can do almost anything you need with the tenon saw. If you plan on cutting long rips you probably want a larger tooth saw to save time.

    I’d recommend watching Paul’s video on saw sharpening under the tools & techniques menu. He discusses rip versus crosscut and as Mike said, anything with more teeth than 12 ppi (I’m not sure if that’s the number Paul said in the video), should be sharpened rip cut. It makes no difference as Paul proves a rip saw will crosscut with enough teeth. It makes no difference. But watch the video to make sure I’m correct.

    The Adria small tenon saw has  13 teeth per inch, and the dovetail saw has 15 teeth per inch. So you should be ok
