Hi Dave

Great build on the diorama !
It's in my gallery !

I read that you cut your own stripwood from 3/4" board.
I would love to be able to do this.
I have cut bigger stuff over the years on 'regular' table-saws...
...But obviously something a bit finer is needed for this.

I friend of mine had a 'modellers' table-saw...
...but it was seriously under-powered.
Kinda OK for striping 1/8 & 1/4 stuff...
...but not generaly great.
I'm sure slightly higher power ones are available.

Do you have a saw recomendation Dave ?
What dia. blade are you using ?
How many teeth does it have ?

Any tips or pointers on this most welcome.

I have 2 spare, powerfull, hand-held saws...
...I have considered making a table for one of them.

I'm guessing maybe a 4" blade with maybe 10 teeth/" is about what I might need ?...
...or just get a decent purpose-made modellers table-saw ?

Any answers most welcome Dave...
...& anyone else who has good saw/blade advice.
