Lynx Dovetail Saw Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Thomas Flinn & Co.

Tool Type: Dovetail Saw

Model No: Beech Handle


The Lynx beech handled dovetail saw review covers the Lynx saw made by Thomas Flinn & Co of Sheffield, England.

The Lynx beech handled dovetail saw forms part of one of the lower cost ranges of saws produced by Thomas Flinn. Although priced much more cheaply than many of the other saws produced by Thomas Flinn, the saw is still of good quality and good value.

The difference in cost comes down to the way the saw is made with a large part of that cost being the type of handle and fixings.

The Lynx beech handled dovetail saw is only made in one size:

     - 8 inch

The alloy spring steel blade has a depth of 58mm (2 1/4 inches).

These saws are made with a choice of two teeth type:

     - Rip
     - Crosscut

The rip teeth are specialised for cutting with the grain and the crosscut teeth are specialised for cutting across the grain.

These saws have 20 tpi (teeth per inch), with teeth which can be resharpened repeatedly for a long life.

The saw blades are given a substantial etching of the Lynx brand to add to the attractiveness of the tool.

The saw blades have a weighted brass back spine which offers extra control, tension and purchase while offering an added attractive appearance.

The brass spine is linished on these beech handled Lynx dovetail saws.

These dovetail saws are each fitted with a steamed and stained beech handle.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of three brass-plated round head screws. The securing screws have a round head on both sides and can accept a flat-head screwdriver at either end.

The saws are presented in a black, thick plastic sleeve.
