Folding pull saw fits in your toolbelt, ready for action, any time you have to make a quick cut.
I’m always reaching for my Tajima G-Saw. Whether framing or trimming there are lots of times when I have to make a quick cut. While I could grab a battery circular or reciprocating saw, often it’s not worth the time when a few strokes with the pull saw can do the trick. I can barely count the number of times each day I use the G-saw.
Here’s just a few uses from the past few days:
- Finishing out the inside corner cuts on a piece of composite trim as well as on stair stringers.
- Trimming the bottom ends of corner boards off to match the skirt board.
- Cutting a couple 2×4 blocks to length for the HVAC duct installers.
- Lopping off an overhanging limb.
- Cutting off rake boards flush with a fascia board.
- Cutting thick cardboard box panels down to size for recycling.
- Trimming plastic rainscreen intake vents to length.
- Cutting off the end of blocking that stuck past the face of a stud.
- And the list goes on.
One thing that makes the G-Saw so handy is I always have it with me. The blade folds into the handle so the teeth are protected from damage jostling around in my tool pouch — and my fingers are protected from the teeth. The saws are pouch length too — 9 1/2 in. and 8 1/4 in.
The blade snaps into locked open position and feels like a fixed handle saw. It only folds back up when the release thumb button is pressed. A G-saw will set you back about $20 and will pay for itself many times over.
