Hi Dave

Thanks very much for your blade advice.

My dia. & TPI 'guess' was probably way out, I know...
...a guy cut some v.small plexiglass strip for me a while back...
...and he seemed to have a blade similar.

I have struggled with only bog-std. rip-blades...
...wobble & TPI & table-gaps, have ALL been issues.

I see the company that makes your blade; pride themselves on 'low wobble'; great !

I will have a look for a decent supplier in the UK.
Saw blades I have seen so far, are not suitable.

I think one of the old hand-held power-saws, on it's own no-gap table; just for modelling wood; is what I will aim for.

Am getting back to modelling after some time away from the hobby.
I used to have a few favorite & local materials suppliers...
...but they have all closed...
...and simple stuff like stripwood; seems hard to get !

Cheers

Si.

Great build again Dave !
& yeah...
...I'll watch my fingers !
