      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 couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

          If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

          The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

          I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
