Frame saw uses.

Frame saws are a type of hand saw that consist of a frame or bow that holds a thin, flexible blade under tension. The blade is typically longer and thinner than those found on other types of hand saws, and it can be easily replaced when it becomes dull or damaged.

Frame saws are versatile tools that can be used for a range of cutting tasks. Some of their most common uses include:

  1. Cutting curves: Frame saws are excellent for cutting curves and intricate shapes in wood, as their thin, flexible blades can easily manoeuvre around corners and tight spaces.
  2. Resawing: Frame saws can be used for resawing, which involves cutting a board lengthwise into thinner pieces. This is a useful technique for creating thin boards or veneers from thicker stock.
  3. Joinery: Frame saws are also useful for joinery tasks, such as cutting tenons, mortises, and dovetails.
  4. Green woodworking: Frame saws are well-suited for cutting green wood, which is wood that has not been dried or seasoned. Green wood is softer and more flexible than dry wood, and frame saws can make quick work of cutting through it.
  5. Metalwork: Frame saws can be fitted with a metal cutting blade for cutting metal to size.

Overall, frame saws are versatile tools that are useful for a range of cutting tasks, particularly those that require precision and control. If you work with wood or other materials that require intricate or curved cuts, a frame saw is a tool that you may find helpful.


Frame saws can be collapsed or disassembled for easier storage and transport. This is particularly useful if you need to carry the saw with you to a job site or if you have limited space in your workshop.

There are a few different types of collapsible frame saws available, including:

  1. Folding frame saws: Folding frame saws have a hinge mechanism that allows the blade to be folded up into the frame when not in use. This makes the saw more compact and easier to carry.
  2. Adjustable frame saws: Adjustable frame saws have a frame that can be adjusted to different angles, which allows the blade to be stored flat against the frame for easier transport.
  3. Disassembling frame saws: Some frame saws can be completely disassembled by removing the blade and separating the frame into smaller pieces. This is a good option if you need to store the saw in a small space or if you want to transport it in a backpack or tool bag.

It's important to note that not all frame saws are collapsible or disassemble, so be sure to check the specifications of the saw you are interested in before purchasing. If portability and storage space are important factors for you, look for a frame saw that is designed to be collapsible or disassembled for easier transport.


Carrying a frame saw will depend on the size and weight of the saw, as well as personal preference. Here are a few options for carrying a frame saw:

  1. Sheath: Some frame saws come with a protective sheath or case that can be attached to a belt or carried in a tool bag. This is a convenient option if you want to keep the saw protected and easily accessible.
  2. Strap or sling: For larger frame saws, you may want to consider using a strap or sling to carry the saw over your shoulder or across your back. This is a good option if you plan to use the saw for extended periods of time or if you need to carry other tools as well.
  3. Carabiner clip: Another option is to attach a carabiner clip to the frame saw and clip it onto a backpack or tool bag. This is a simple and lightweight option that works well for smaller frame saws.

Regardless of how you choose to carry your frame saw, it's important to make sure that it is secure and protected during transport. If you are carrying the saw in a tool bag or backpack, consider using a protective sleeve or wrapping the blade in a cloth to prevent it from getting damaged.
