What type of saw is best for cutting wood, plastic, etc.?
Is it a hacksaw, one of those Christmas tree cutting saws, etc.?
Suggestion by Allan Wilkins
Go to Home Depot and get a “tool box saw” They’re rather short and have very sharp teeth. They will cut anything but metal. Cost about $ 15.00

A hacksaw (coarse blade) could be used on plastic, but not wood. A carpenters’ saw would be used on wood.
Power saws are always the most efficient, but of course it depends on what type of cuts you are doing. Are you ripping (cutting length ways) wood/plastic or are you crosscutting (cutting perpendicular to the grain)? The other item you need to consider is how big/small is the material that you are wanting to cut? I would recommend a circular saw and/or a jigsaw for most simple cuts that don’t have to be very accurate. If you need the cuts to be accurate, I recommend a table saw and/or a miter (compound for two angles at the same time) saw. Having said this, all you need to do now is use the right type of saw blades for the material that you are cutting.
NOTE: Power saws are dangerous, especially table saws. BE VERY CAREFUL!! They take off fingers faster than you can blink…

Razor saw is best.Razor saws are a type of back saw, which includes finely-pitched crosscut teeth.These hand saws contain disposable/replaceable blades.There are various benefits associated with the usage of razor saws. First and foremost, the benefit of using these hand saws is that the presence of the thin blades allows them to cut soft metal, plastic or wood with a very small kerf, maintaining a neat and clean edge on both sides of the cut. Used with more teeth per inch, makes these saws a perfect alternative for fine inlay work on instruments or inlaid dollhouse furniture, railroad cars, track and plastic airplane kits. Most of these hand saws cut only on the pull stroke. However, you can also find a huge assortment of razor saws with replaceable/removable blades which can also be used for push or pull strokes.
