Really nice saw frame
by C. Brown
Really nice saw frame, now that I have a few hours into it. It feels a bit 'harsh' with heavier blades, but really shines with the finer ones. I expect to end up with a few of these....

Wow, I have several saw frames, including cam lock... so I didn't really have exceptional expectations... but I can tell you, this saw works beautifully...even putting the blade in is simple, and the balance is great. I absolutely love it!!!!

GreenLion has designed a beautiful looking and smooth functioning saw frame. Cuts are very straight as the blade is held steady and there isn't any wobble to it. The handle is very comfortable to hold. If I could have a wooden handle, I would like it even more. Metal dust sticks to the handle but it brushes off. It does take a bit of strength to change the blade but I have broken less blades than ever. All in all, this is an excellent tool and is worth every dollar.
The saw I've been waiting for
by Mario De Bello
Finally, the Green Lion people have made the saw frame I've been looking for my whole jewelry career. Solidly built, holds the saw blades without slipping and twisting which has always been a problem with other frames. Plus it's a beautiful design that enhances the workspace I spend so much time in.
a saw for all times
This is the best saw frame. I've donated my other ones because I like this one so much. It is balanced in weight and is very deep, making it easier to saw bangle strips, etc. My GreenLion says it believes in me, and I believe in it.
Best saw ever! Love it!!
I Ã¯Â¿Â½ve a Jewlery workshop now for over 20 years, but this is the best saw I ever had. Smooth, straight, excellent. Good grip, well ballanced. Love it
Received my order the other day and it is an amazing saw. Comfortable and well balanced. Wished I had waited 3 days and ordered during the Cyber Monday ssle, 6 dozen free saw blades would of been icing in the cake.
This is by far the best saw I have
This is by far the best saw I have and I have several types from basic to locking cam styles. This saw is perfectly balanced and the handle hold design is such that all my hand has to do is guide the saw. I don't need to have any great grip on it. Love, love, love it!
Really like this beautiful sawframe
Great, But Needs Work
by Albert R
The frame is no longer water jet cut, it appears stamped out of 11 gauge metal (0.115 inch). This leaves a sharp edge around the saw frame that was sufficient to rub my index finger raw.The handle is a black rubberized material; but the injection molding leaves a thin ridge/parting line where the two halves meet. The thumbscrews are nice, round and winged. When I tightened the blade, the bottom one was perpendicular to the Earth's surface! Instead of it resting flat on or above my thumb, it laid that sharp, square edge right between my nail bed and first knuckle joint! The center of gravity is definitely behind the thumb Blade tensioning was easy for me. You can still use the classic chest to bench technique, just don't fold the saw!
<br>Having said that, after breaking the sharp edges with a file and wet/dry, trimming the rubber with 60 grit sandpaper, and adjusting my grip, it has become my favorite saw.
4 are not enough
by Di-Ann Hand
I had three. I gave one to my brother. I missed it so much I bought two more to replace it. I have 4 now. It’s best tool I own.
Great looking saw
by Blake Pitts
It’s nice to work w a tool that works great and beautiful to look at...
Beautiful saw frame, but even more beautiful in performance
I wish I had purchased this saw frame much sooner! It took a while to get used to the rigidity after being used to a more flexible frame, but I am really happy with it after some use. It’s made very well, balanced nicely, and has reduced the number of broken and bent blades (and subsequent changes). I really have no complaints, but IF there were a version with a wooden handle I’d go for another.... hint hint
