Was this a power saw or a manual saw with just a blade sticking up?

Jim, it was just a fixed blade on a sliding table. Do you know it?

If you follow the link above to BridgeCity Tools above there is a pretty impressive video of what you can do with the saw. I will have to add it to my some day list.

I have just watched the video. Looks like it would be great for box making.

Also, I had remembered seeing the saw reviewed when it first came out. I went back and found the original review in Chris Schwartz’s blog.

Wow, I’m not much of a hand tool guy but that video may make me into one. Only paid about that much for three horses of 220 drive and several hundred pounds of steel, kinda makes me wonder what that blade is made of, platinum / titanium alloy? Thanks for the post, BTKS
