What kind of cutting saws do you guys use? I'm trying to find something I can pick up at Michael's over the weekend. Anyone ever buy one there? I plan to saw both plastic and metal parts, but more plastic.
I've seen everything from what looks like a putty knife with a serrated edge to something with a curved handle and replaceable blades like a hacksaw or coping saw. What do you all recommend? If I go to the store this weekend and find some "generic" saws, is there some kind of feature I should look for or avoid?
Sorry if this has been covered before. I didn't find anything.
Go check out Splata's "Saw Question", from Feb. 18th. We covered it pretty well there.
Zona razor saws are my personal favourites, really nice saws that nobody seems to have managed to damage yet.
There's a million other brands that make razor saws out there, too. (X-acto, etc...) They're all pretty good, but for my money, I'll stick with Zona.
Jeweler's saws are another popular choice, very well suited to really fine work.
Generally, you're looking for fine teeth (so they don't tear up the model too fast), a thin blade (so it doesn't wipe out 1/4" of the part), and generally sturdy construction - poorly built tools are just going to make life difficult. Price is another big one, most of these saws should cost from $8 to $15, maximum.
