      Hi Newholland,
      Watch out for buying a very old saw. I rather would buy new. If anything goes wrong with that old saw, you might not be able to get parts.
      I am sure that many will suggest what new saw to buy.

        On the other side of what Mike said - it's harder to get parts but older ones were probably built better. I'd rather find a lightly used DeWalt Type 1 than a brand new DeWalt type 2. Of course you never know how a used one was run or taken care of.

        As far as blades go - for intarsia - I use mainly #7 blades for the majority of my work.

          Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

          With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
