      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.

          Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

          Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry
