Hebrew to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / wood saws
Hebrew term or phrase:מסור נימה
What is the correct name for this saw in English?
Wikipedia calls it a Scroll saw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scroll_saw) but in the explanation it says it is "useful for cutting intricate curves **in cases where a jigsaw or coping saw is not appropriate**", BUT, my text says:
ג’יגסו (מסור נימה), מסור יד או מסור דיסק - thus מסור נימה in my text is synonymous with a jigsaw.
