But for building the kids a sandbox, or when repairing some stairs or even cutting tomato stakes, a hand saw will do all you want it to do and perhaps do it more accurately. THE BASIC SAW for every handyman is the wood-cutting hand It's generally 26 or 24 inches >ng (26 inches is preferred). It has a wide, tapered, metal blade, wood handle and differs widely as the number of teeth per inch anil their set. Number of teeth per inch is the method by which saws are classified, generally. Classification is known as the "point" system. Thus, a 12-point saw is one that has 12 teeth to the inch. Rip saws have four-to five-and- one-half teeth per inch. They're used for cutting with the grain of the wood, and make a coarse cut . The crosscut saw, used for cut' ting across the grain of the wood, has from six lo 12 teeth per inch, and gives a fairly fine cut. FOR THE HANDY MAN who Is just beginning to equip his shop, the first, basic saw is an eight-point crosscut saw. It will give a moderately fine cut and is versatile enough, so that it will handle ripping jobs he's likely to encounter, Keep the saw clean and dry. Give, it a light wiping with machine oil after use, or protect it with an oxidation-resistant polish. Some authorities suggest that you oil or paraffin the sides of the blade—use oil when sawing green wood, paraffin on lumber that you may want to finish if a particular piece ot wood gives you trouble.
