      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.

          I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

          I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

          Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
