Subject:
Optical illusion alludes me

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
"The Veritas backsaws share a problem with all traditional saws with folded backs"

"optical illusion that the back is bent" Really?

I have not observed this issue. Maybe since I didn't know it existed it didn't become a problem in my work. But then I must cut dovetails incorrectly because I am not looking at the back of the saw when I cut. I'm looking at the teeth. I'm not going to be looking at the back of the saw to guess what the teeth are doing several inches away.
