| The Frame
Saw frame flex is a big culprit in breaking sawblades. The Knew Concepts saw frame is designed to eliminate flex. The rigid heat treated aluminum frame is also extremely light weight; among the lightest on the market today. That rigidity also translates into better control over your sawblade.
Red saw frame. Why red? A recent study published in Science magazine suggests color has an effect on cognitive tasks. Data indicates the color red promotes better accuracy when performing tasks. Sawing is definitely an area you want accuracy.
The saw frame is not adjustable. It is designed for use with standard length jewelers' sawblades. This eliminates and adjusting or "fiddling" with loose frames when you are trying to fit a blade. This saw frame features the amazing Cam Lever. The Cam Lever allows for the quick tensioning of sawblades. You just insert a sawblade and tighten, then use the Tension Screw to "pre-tension" the blade. Then by flipping the Cam Lever over 180deg., the blade gets a locked into its final tension position. Now anytime you need to replace an blade, just release the Cam Lever, change the blade and reset the Cam Lever. You are ready to go. No need to readjust the tension. Saves you tons of time and aggravation.
Well, better tools in the right hands will produce better results. This is absolutely a better sawframe.
