Question: Saw Sets? 5 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hi there!

I have read that the Stanley 42x is the best saw set. I want to know, are there others that are equally as good? My dovetail saw is 20 ppi. How about the one sold by Highland Woodworking:

Thanks,

Robert

Hi Robert,

Welcome to the forum, that blue somax saw set is the one I use
mostly for small teeth. The Stanley 42X is pretty good as well
and some people prefer the pistol grip style to the plier style.

The somax is a copy of the eclipse 77, and you can often pick
them up for next to nothing. Although the standard 77 is a bit
coarse for 20 tpi.

You can regrind the plunger on the 77 to suit smaller teeth.

My preference is the Blue Somax for small teeth.

Regards
Ray

I too use the Blue Somax which is rated 12-26pt. You can get one from www.toolsforwoodworkingwood.com $12.95 2008
For anything less I use the Eclipse 77..I have 4-5. It is so smooth . Maybe I will try cutting back a plunger as suggested. Roger
