New Tools

This is the new... or pretty new, "Knew Concepts" saw frame.  It's suppose to BLOW DOORS off of the old standard jewelers saw.  The official spec's are below:

Enjoy the superior engineering of the original Knew Concepts jeweler's hand saw frame plus a quick-change cam-lever tensioning system.
The cam-lever system lets you quickly change blades without losing your tension adjustment: simply flip the lever up to release tension, swap out blade and flip the lever back down. Save time and trouble when work demands repetitive blade changes, such as when piercing metal.
Knew Concepts saw frames are light and rigid, providing precise control, reduced blade breakage and virtually no flex. The hardened aluminum frame weighs only 129 grams, far less than a comparable steel saw frame. The 5" (127mm) throat depth is ideal for fine work on small pieces; working length of the saw blade is 4-1/4". A comfortably curved wood handle and excellent balance and control make this saw an excellent choice.

I plan to order this I will let you know if you should  blow $78.00 on this saw or not (I added shipping to the cost...but that's what comes out of your pocket)
