Metal Saws can only be made from tool metals. They can be cast in ceramic molds, or worked on a metal anvil.
- Main article: Casting
Bismuth Bronze, Black Bronze, Bronze, and Copper Saws can be cast using a Vessel or a Ceramic Mold instead of working on an anvil.
|Making the Clay Tool Mold
||Firing the Mold
Place an empty or partially filled saw mold into the slot to fill it with metal from the vessel. It takes 100 units of metal to completely fill an empty Ceramic Mold. The text in the vessel's GUI will be updated to show the amount of metal remaining in the vessel.
| 100 Units
To fill the saw mold from a ceramic ingot mold, right click the liquid unshaped ingot to open the casting interface:
Put the ceramic Saw mold in the second input slot and wait for the filled mold to finished.

||Finishing the Saw
- Main article: Working
Saw Blades can also be crafted by using ingots on an anvil with a hammer. This is the only option for higher tier metals that cannot be cast. The durability depends both on the metal used and the skill of the smith forging the tool.

Finishing the Saw
Saws can be used to break player placed logs and planks and to gather saplings from Fruit Trees instead of axes.
Combining two logs, from any tree of the same type with a saw creates eight support beams like shown in the recipes below.
