Ripsaw

DEFINITION

A long-bladed hand-held saw with teeth designed for cutting wood in the same direction as the grain runs. Ripsaws have chisel-like teeth that plow through the wood. By contrast, the teeth of crosscut saws are pointed to cut wood fibers. Both types of teeth are bent out, or set, to create a kerf that's wider than the blade. Although the ripsaw seen here is a hand saw, ripsaw blades are also available for use in circular saws. Ripping with a hand saw demands a 60 degrees angle, as shown.Also see hacksaw.
