Mine is mainly for cross cutting, doesn't require the blade to turn ( I have enough trouble  sawing straight, as it is.. Rolleyes )


If you have a template I would be most happy if you send me one. Yes Yes
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

If the pins are not glued in, they can be rotated 90* for rip. Same way you do a hacksaw.

Well, you could just shear it to the width, and the end user can file his own tooth pattern.
