Crown Tools Pad Saws
Pad saws (sometimes called keyhole saw) are one of those tools that every British joiner and cabinetmaker owned, but never really caught on in the US. I have seen a few old examples made in Philadelphia & New York, but not too often. Today, pad saws are still a popular tool in Britain and Crown Tools still makes a traditional pad saw. We can understand this popularity, because they are so handy. A pad saw is used like a bow saw for cutting curves, but unlike a bow saw, you can cut in an enclosed hole with a pad saw without a lot of hassles. The pad saw is one of those tools that you don't need every day but when you come across a need for a pad saw, you really need it.
