OK, there are two different kinds of saws... those that cut and those that don't...

Or, there are western push saws or Japanese pattern pull saws....

Or... there are rip and crosscut saws...

First, what's the difference between a rip and crosscut, if there is any? Oh, and describe how the teeth work....

Now, for the SECOND part... what kind of saw tooth pattern would you use to cut:

Dovetails.

Tenons.

A board in half lengthwise.

A board in half crosswise.

A lapped dovetail socket...

The weasels are all confused about this... can you help straighten this out for them?

A rip saw has teeth that are filed straight accross like a bunch of chisels. Crosscut saws are filed on an angle so they are more like knives slicing the wood fibers.

dovetails - rip tooth although a crosscut pattern will work, just slower

tenons - rip for the cheeks, crosscur for the shoulders

lengthwise cut - rip

cross cut - you guessed it

lap dovetails - rip and a SHAAAAARP chisel

Keep the icecream comin Tom!

Well, I think there are 7 questions there.... NO?
Which two should I answer? I,ll thake the first two.

1. Rip saws have fewer teeth per inch and have no off set. Cross cut saws have more teeth per inch and do have an off set on the teeth.

2. Very well if they are very sharp.

I'll leave the last five questions to someone who does those types of things.

Mwaaaaah......?

Oh, those little hairy jerks! They slipped a sedative into that banana split they gave me! How long have I been asleep?

That long?

Grrrr...... The ranch is a MESS!

Before I beat some weasel behind, RWDare, you nailed it! Rips and Crosscuts are different... just like healthy weasels... and those on their way to the hospital... :mad:
