Forge Steel Double Edged Wallboard Saw review

I recently purchased one of these from screwfix. I was going to buy the one that they had on special offer for ages for just £1 but they had sold out.


I already own a drywall saw but it's somewhere in my garage and I did not have time to look for it so I bought another one.

This is a very handy piece of kit and was priced at £4.99

It's very sharp and makes light work of cutting out around sockets and switches. You can push it through the plasterboard and then saw in either direction, which saves pulling the saw out to turn the blade in the opposite direction.

I must say that I own a few Forge steel tools and they are all excellent for the money :thumbright:

Brilliant saws but a word of warning, if you put them in the tool box, make a sheath for it, they are deadly sharp.

The Stanley one is supplied with a sheath which can be threaded onto your tool belt - very handy

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
