Made in Sheffield, the Dorchester 24" panel saw is used for cutting boards, panels or sheet materials to size. The hardened and tempered sawplate is taper ground to minimise friction without reducing tension and the toothline is breasted to ensure maximum contact as your shoulder swings through the stroke.
Used on low trestles or a sawyers bench with one knee clamping the work down, the saw is lifted and allowed to almost fall through the work under its own weight. For very thin boards a shallower angle of insidence will bring more teeth into contact giving a smoother cut, for thicker stuff keep the saw more perpendicular.
The rule of thumb is to keep between 3 and 12 teeth in the work at all times, so this 7tpi version is optimised for 1/2" to 1-1/2" material.
