Been through the archives on this, but didn’t find a direct answer.
I’m looking for an effective and quick way to cut strips of metal with
a clean, straight edge. Rio Grande used to have a mini table saw using
a circular blade like in a Jump Ringer for about $350, but doesn’t
look like they carry it any more. Does anyone have any experience
(especially positive or negative) with one of these, and a cost
effective source? It looks like MicroMark has similar, although it
does not specify use on metals:
I read John Burgess’ description of the razor saw, but want to move
away from manual sawing for these long, straight cuts. Also saw
discussion a while back about using a jeweler’s saw in a scroll saw. I
could go with a guillotine style shear, but dislike the slight bend at
the edge of the cut.
Any insight on this table saw idea is appreciated. Thanks, also to
everyone who responded to my wax model question! I have never seen
such a unanimous and consistent reply to a question… and something I
had never thought of! You people are awesome!
All the best,
