Thanks Tony.

Good to see it go down in price. Always a good thing.

You're correct in saying that steal would wear down the saw blade faster than aluminum. Looks like a great little tool for cutting strip wood.

I also use it to cut a lot of styrene and brass.

I bought one of these when they first came out and found it quite useless as it was too narrow to accommodate a 1/4" piece of wood or styrene as advertised. I contacted Micro Mark about this and they said theyd look into it.

As I see no mention of this in the post anywhere Im assuming they fixed it.

Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks

Peter

The height cannot support a 1/4". so I have to start 'sawing' from an angle and work my way down. but it does have the width for it.

Interesting, they must have fixed it. I wanted to use it to cut planks for flooring 1/4 (1 foot in O scale).

That will work then, the width of the 'channel' is .264 or .265" wide.
