Saw Blade Tension Rig

Saw Blade Tension

We Develop the Strongest Fret Saws on Earth, and Can Prove It!

We built a system to test how much tension—in number of pounds—any given saw frame could actually put on a blade. And guess which saw frames came out on top... that’s right, Knew Concepts saw frames!

Why is tension important? Simple. To hold a skinny piece of wire with teeth as tight as it possibly can. The whole point is to hold that little saw blade in place accurately, so the teeth go where the frame points them. To give you control.

Featured Artist

Cynthia Begay of Hopi Girl Silver


“I am Qalwunga (Sun Forehead clan) and Tódích’íi’nii (Bitterwater clan) from the village of Sipaulovi, Second Mesa.  I come from a family of weavers, pottery makers, carvers, and silversmiths from both my Hopi and Navajo family. I work with silver to keep the memory of my ancestors alive.”

“I bring a contemporary element to my jewelry starting with my Knew Concept tools. My favorite tools are the Knew Concepts bench pin and the 3" fret saw frame. Traditional Hopi overlay requires precise saw work, and these tools compliment my work perfectly!”

Askwali! (Thank you) Knew Concepts!”
