I bought the set of carcass saws (I’m keeping the XCut) to hold me over until I received my dovetail saw from Florip Toolworks. It was purchased in the middle of February this year and only used a handful of times.

Ideally I would like to trade for a larger tenon saw of some sort 3.5”+ cut depth 9-12 tpi Rip. I can do +/- cash but wouldn’t want to add too much. If this sits for awhile I would sell for $60 shipped CONUS. I will add photos tonight but it looks like new.


Lee Valley Description:

These saws carry forward the same design principles we used to develop our innovative dovetail saws, adopting selected traits of traditional carcass saws and rendering them using innovative materials and modern manufacturing methods.
Typically used to cut joints in drawer runners, dividers, and stretchers (the framework or carcass of a piece), they are well balanced, maneuverable, and scaled for smaller work than a tenon saw.

Available in rip and crosscut versions. The 12 tpi rip saw has a 10° rake angle and an included angle of 60° for efficient cutting parallel to the grain. ~~The 14 tpi crosscut saw has a rake angle of 15°, an included angle of 60°, and teeth filed with alternating 15° bevels so they sever wood fibers rather than tear them.~~ The teeth on each have relatively minimal set, at only 0.003” per side.

Each saw has a molded spine that incorporates stainless-steel powder for weight, glass fiber for stiffness, and an advanced polymer binder. An over-molded blade and stainless-steel handle-mounting bolt create a solid blade/spine/mount assembly. A single brass fastener secures the hardwood handle. The open-grip handle, made larger than those of classic carcass saws, permits a comfortable, secure grip. The high-carbon steel blade, 11” long and 0.02” thick, has a cut depth of about 2-3/8”. Each saw is 16-3/8” long overall and weighs just under a pound. Offered individually or as a pair.
