Side note...if it's a pull saw, why does the guy in the pic have the piece he is cutting away from him?
I've had one of those, although a push stroke, since about 1980, originally purchased for balsa airplane building. Push stroke worked find for that. I also have some very fine metal (alum.) blades.
I like the notion of a pull stroke saw. But... Wait a minute...
It has a lip on the bottom for bracing against a workbench. Seems like someone just took the miter box from a push stroke type and substituted the pull stroke saw. Seems to me that would not work so very well. How is it working for you?
EDIT: Thinking on this a bit, I am reconsidering this about not working well. It would just be a matter of bracing the box against the bench during the pull stroke. Probably works fine. RK.
For small items, I have gone to one of these
and photo below. Only use it for quick cuts where the angle isn't critical, although the vise does rotate up to 45º. I had one from Horror Freight for years but it was kind of crappy. This one is not a lot better, but enough so that I am happy with it.
