Piercing & Coping Saws
A coping saw is a small hand saw used primarily in woodworking and carpentry. It has been designed to cut intricate and detailed external shapes and interior cut outs of pieces of wood, and is also used to create coping joints. The blade of this type of saw is thicker and coarser compared to other saws from the same family of saws.
Our three different coping saws on offer all consist of essentially the same components. They all have a hardened steel blade that is attached between the ends of the frame. The frame of a coping saw should be springy enough for the easy and quick removal of the blade so that it can be passed through a drilled hole in a piece of wood that needs to be shaped.
The blade is then re-attached and you can start sawing the pattern desired. Our selection all have comfortable handles that fit easily into any hand, which makes them popular and easy to use. Comfort and design combine to make it possible to achieve gentle curves by allowing you to turn the frame while sawing, while still remaining accurate. Its teeth face in the opposite direction, towards the handle, compared to most other saws, allowing it to cut when pulling as opposed to pushing.
Using a coping saw correctly and effectively requires practice which makes it important to have high quality equipment to ensure accuracy when using it. Our selection of coping saws are not limited to cutting only wood and with the right blade attachment can be used to cut thin metals such as aluminium tubing.
