Looking for a saw set for my 11 tpi tenon saw.

Bill…. the 42 is one sweet set. I use mine from 8tpi thru 14tpi with ease.

Im sure theres still some out there, but you may have to PAY for em.

Bill, do you have any other saw sets lying around? Generally you can file the pin down to fit on narrower teeth. That’s basically the difference between a fine and coarse saw set.

If you don’t have anything, you can get the Somax fine saw set from Lee Valley or Highland Woodworking, and maybe Rockler or Woodcraft. It works well, just the steel isn’t as hard as maybe it should be and people say it wears out quicker.

From $39.00 to $70.00 for a brand new old stock one.
