Japanese Free-Way Coping Saw Review By: I.Ball
Category: New Special Saws
Manufacturer: Picus (KOYO INDUSTRIES CO LTD)?
Tool Type: Coping Saw
This Japanese Free-Way Coping Saw review covers the Picus Free-Way Coping
Saw made by I believe the Japanese company KOYO INDUSTRIES CO LTD under
the brand 'Picus'.
The Japanese Free-Way Coping Saw is of similar design to the traditional Coping Saw with a metal C-shaped / D-shaped frame which gives tension to a thin blade and a single handle for control.
The handle is dark green in colour and is marked 'Picus'.
The frame is bright mint green in colour and is marked 'Free Way, Coping Saw, Picus'.
The 'Free Way' Coping Saw is usually supplied with two spiral tooth blades as standard.
The 'Free Way' Coping Saw blades have a special spiral tooth design which allows the Coping Saw to cut in any direction without the need to move the frame.
It is advertised that the saw frame is tuned to apply the optimal amount of tension to the blade resulting in less broken blades.
The 'Free Way' Coping Saw can if wanted also accept regular coping saw blades.
The 'Free Way' Coping Saw is supplied in a cardboard and plastic blister packet.
