Stanley says this new flooring saw is perfect for cutting dovetails, miters, and tenons — the bread and butter of custom flooring installation. Having never really done any myself, I can’t speak to the saw’s functionality. But I do like the idea of the angled handle.

Besides its shape, the saw also offers a rubber-coated handle, which Stanley claims is much more comfortable than wood — without sacrificing durability or accuracy. Street pricing starts around $10 for the 12″ and slightly more for the 14″.

If you’re an experienced flooring installer and have spent some time with one of these — or a similar model — we’d love to hear about it in comments.

    What makes it a flooring saw is the curved top section with teeth that allow you to cut out bad sections of flooring – the old-fashioned way – by hand. This can be hard work and a bit tricky – requiring a sharp flooring chisel to help complete the job.

    It might be a good flooring saw but I can’t ever imagine using it to cut dovetails. That angled handle and no back would be tough to work with.
