A fretsaw has an especially thin blade and wide frame which allow cutting narrow curves and holes.

The blade is under quite some tension; we should make a simple jig to aid changing it. Using tongue-and-groove pliers will let you tighten the wing nuts well enough so the blade does not snap right out again after a few seconds.

Another accessory we should make is a "fretsaw table" like this one.

Saw Blades

Replacement saw blades cost approx. 30 ct per blade in local hardware stores.
