I bought one at Harbor Frieght about 10 years ago for $7 and it still works great.

Rockler offer a small fold-up ''flexible flush cut saw'', for only a few dollars---

ideal for cutting the plugs flush.

 

The folded saw fits nicely into any of the Kreg tools storage boxes.

 

http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=29078&filter=flush%20tr...

 

That link to ptree shows just normal pull saws. By normal I mean saws with a "set" in the teeth. To flush cut plugs, like Ken says, you need a flush cutting saw that has teeth set on only one side. I just use my router with a straight bit.

The flexible flush cut saw, I mentioned above, has ''no set'' in the teeth.

The blade is ''0.015'' thick.

It virtually makes ''flush'' cuts.

If I experience slight saw tooth marks, on a finished surface, I apply a thin strip of masking tape over/around the plug, that protrudes above the finished surface.

Make a hole, in the tape, the size of the dowel/plug, slip it over the protruding plug, press it firmly in place and saw away.  After removal of the plug extension, remove the tape, clean-up any tape residue with rubbing alcohol. 

 

A router can be used for flush cutting---

however; in close quarters, where a router tool will not fit, then the cutting operation must be performed by other means, such as;

a flush cutting saw, 

Dremels MultMax oscillating tool,

or the like.

 

Works for me.

 

John,

Nice find---thanks for sharing.

Looks like a great price, for a set of 2 saws.

 

Years ago, I didn't give much thought to obtaining those type of saws, however;

when I got my hands on them, and used them---

I'm sold on these style ''pull'' saws---

they are the ''cats pajamas'', as grandpa used to say.

 

Since using the ''pull'' saws, I can't recall the last time, I've used a ''push'' style saw, for hand sawing.

The ''pulling'' operation of the saws is a lot easier to use---

resulting in more accurate and smoother cuts, over the western style ''push'' cutting style saws.

 

 

Well, duh... I thought they were flush cuts, Oh well, got 'em on order anyway, guess I'll find out. Gonna have to start reading the adds closer. Been using a multi-max, it's easy to get to close with it and mar the face.

Thanks for the link to that Rockler saw, that looks like and handly little rascal.

John,

Keep those saws you ordered---They'll come in very handy---

i.e., unless of course, you don't want them, send 'em my way---

they'll get put to good use.

 

There are a few various Japanese pull-saw versions on today market.

Some are currently offered in the home centers.

Rockler offers the best ones, I know of, to date---they are of the best quality---you won't find them in the home centers.

 

One of the models, is capable of slicing a toothpick or popsicle stick in half.

Hi Ken - thanks for the link. Interesting, the cheapest saw, the Fastcap, is also the highest reviewed. May end up in a Christmas stocking, unless I get impatient...

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction
