I used to have one, but I sold it when I upgraded to the bigger Proxxon saw. Silly mistake. The beauty of the KS230 is that it easily precision-cuts short lengths of small-dimension planks, vital when your model kit fails to include enough of the wood you need.
Plus, if you're willing to regard the sawblades as sacrificial objects, you can also cut fairly thick sheets of brass into useful narrow strips.
Going price for a new one seems to be around the £100 mark now, and the UK suppliers seem now (at last) to be matching the prices that the suppliers in Germany and Italy have been offering for the last few years.
