I'm looking for a saw similar to a drywall saw - cuts on the push
stroke and is stiff and pointy - but has nice sharp teeth and a
somewhat thinner kerf say than your typical 4-6 tpi drywall saw.
Thank you very much. Oh yeah - does anyone know what this thing
"gewgull" is that everyones' talking about?
If it's absolutely gotta be a push stroke you may be out of luck finding
an off-the-shelf solution. A Bosch T101BR jigsaw blade has 10 tpi, is
.06" thick, and has reverse teeth so it cuts on the push stroke. You
can with a little work shoehorn a Bosch blade into an X-Acto Number 5
Not the most elegant thing in the world but it works.

Right. Let him try making a point on a hacksaw blade and using one of
the holder handles. Then he can see how nice pull saws can be by
simply reversing the blade. http://fwd4.me/TUP one style.

I have one like that - older naturally - but the blade bunches up
when you push it. Light strokes on push or stronger ones on the pull.
With it you flip over - end to end the blade.

We would call that a Pad Saw but you are right it is hard to find good
replacement blades for them. I have once or twice put a jigsaw blade in the
Pad Saw handle when I needed a sharp or finer cut.
