NOVOLARI
Folding saw

In our test, the Folding by novolari an very good Leave an impression. This product is a Folding with two different saw blades. The silver saw blade with coarse cutting teeth is for Wood suitable, while the black saw blade with fine teeth is suitable for Metal and Plastic can be used. With the silver sheet can also thick woods fast and saw without much effort. It is also possible to saw metal and plastic, with the saw blade at Metal easily jumps and at Plastic an uneven cutting pattern is created. Thanks to the high blade, both saw blades can be used very straight cuts, but if the saw is set at an angle from the start, this can hardly be corrected. through the folding mechanism the saw can be stowed away compactly, but the folding mechanism is not noticeable when sawing.

  • Stable construction
  • Sharp wooden saw teeth
  • Very straight cuts
  • Only little effort
  • Practical folding mechanism
  • Two saws in one housing
  • Jumping possible when applying to metal
  • Rough cutting pattern with plastic

The Test

General Information

We got the article in the practical test examined and tested in detail. Below we go into more detail about the features and impressions. The product, from the packaging to the materials and quality to the range of functions and handling our test procedure subjected.

To give you a quick overview, we work with a points system. The maximum possible number of points per area is 100 points. The final overall grade is calculated from the average of all tested characteristics, taking into account the respective weightings.

The Folding by novolari came in our case in a generously sized Shipping box at. The much smaller product packaging lay at an angle inside the shipping carton. Since there was no other filling material, the product packaging could still fit within the shipping carton in a limited space slip, On adequate protection was given by the robust and tight-fitting product packaging. This consisted of one custom-fit Cardboard generously covered with transparent Tape was wrapped. For the sake of the environment would have on a large part of the tape waived can be.

Inside the product box, the folding saw was still in a transparent one Foil wrapped up. Since the product was adequately protected even without the film, from our point of view it should have waived can become. Both the film and the two boxes could be removed without tools light open. A additional protection provides the folding mechanism the saw, which the cutting edges holding the saw blades within the handle. Damage to the blades during transport is therefore excluded.

The two packing boxes and the saw itself came undamaged and in flawless state on. Accordingly positive is the first impression of the saw.

The Saw by novolari comes in an attractive product bag with the manufacturer’s logo. In addition, the packaging is one matching and practical belt bag at. At the Folding by novolari it is a multifunction saw, which is suitable for metal, wood and plastics.

The Folding itself consists of one Handle, two different ones saw blades and a release bolt. Like the saw blades, the inside of the handle is also made of Metal. So that it still lies well in the hand, it is thick with red Rubber overdrawn. On the underside of the handle there is a deep one along the entire length notch. When folded, the saw blades lie in the notch. This will protect the sheet from damage protected and at the same time prevents the user from being injured by the saw teeth. Another advantage of the folding mechanism is that when folded, the size of the saw is reduced by about half reduced. This makes it easier to transport and store.

The saw has two various Saw blades: The wood saw blade is silver-colored and has relatively large, sharp-edged incisors. The Mhacksaw blade is painted black and has significantly more but smaller incisors. It is according to the manufacturer for metal, PVC, carpet and rubber suitable. Both saw blades lie next to each other and are rotatably connected to the handle via a cardan shaft.

In order to fold the saw out and in again, the release bolt be actuated. This is located at the end of the handle and can be two directions be moved. Depending on the direction, either the metal saw blade or the wood saw blade unlocked. The bolt is button-like rounded at both ends and is easy to press, but feels notchy. Two springs ensure that the bolt automatically snapswhen the saw blades are fully folded in or out. As a special extra, one end of the bolt is black and the other silver-colored. If you press on the respective side, the correspondingly colored saw blade is released. This eliminates the hassle of trying things out to unlock the right saw blade.

Im unfolded state The handle and folded-out saw blade are not only connected to each other via the joint, but also via the unlocking mechanism. Both saw blades are significantly thinner than one millimeter. Due to the height of the saw blades, they are still very stable. The saw blade is 32 mm high at the joint and tapers towards the front. The saw teeth of the wooden blade are three millimeters high, are ground alternately on both sides and are very sharp. In contrast, the saw teeth of the metal blade are symmetrical and extend across the entire width of the saw blade. They are about 0,5 mm high.

Overall, the saw makes a stable impression. The metal is sufficient strong dimensioned and the saw blades are equipped with a stable Bolt connected to the handle. Also at the application there is nothing to complain about.

We begin ours field test with the sawing of Wood. Although the release bolt at first notchy works, the saw can always be used straight away unlock. Stand for the saw blades two positions available. In the first position, the saw blade and handle form an obtuse angle, in the second position the blade and handle are in one line. The locks in both positions release bolt rinse Reliable .

The Saw by Wood is working perfect. The saw can be used as soon as it is attached greatto lead. As the sawing progresses, the saw also impresses with its sharpen incisors. The effort is low. On the one hand, this is due to the sharp saw teeth and, on the other hand, to the small width of the saw blade. The Handle lies well in the hand and cannot slip off thanks to the rubber.

Due to the large height of the saw blade are very straight cuts possible. The disadvantage, however, is that an inadvertently applied diagonal cut hardly corrected can be. If a cut is to be carried out precisely, special care must therefore be taken Beginning on a exact alignment of the saw must be taken into account.

After the sawing process is the section very flat and evenly. There are only small splinters on the edges, but these can easily be removed with sandpaper or a file.

After testing on wood, we fold in the silver wood saw blade and the black saw blade out. At the Collapse it happens again and again that the sharp teeth of the wood saw blade get stuck in the rubber of the handle cover caught and this in the area of ​​the grip notch rip. While this can be avoided by being careful to fold the blade straight into the handle, it happens quickly. While damaging the rubber does not result in a loss of functionality, it does affect the optics the saw. Remedy could create a harder material in the notch area of ​​the handle where the incisors can’t catch.

In the Saw with the metal blade, the saw is unfortunately not as convincing as when sawing with wood. Here is above all skill the attachment asked. This applies to both metal and plastic. If there is no notch in the material to be sawn, the blade tends to shrink by a few millimetres springen. However, once the first cut has been made, the saw can be used continue sawing easily. As with sawing wood, the high saw blade ensures that the cuts are very straight, but that direction correction is hardly possible. At Metal the black saw blade produces a very flat section without any significant burr formation. This hits home Plastic unfortunately not to. We chose a cable duct as a test object, its cut edge rough and is uneven.

Overall, the set makes one in the practical test very good Impression. Thick wood and stable metal can be cut through with the saw without much effort. For precise cuts is, however, mainly in the initial phase of sawing skill are required for operation.
