Dremel moto saw

Hi guys and Gals, A couple of weeks ago I stoped at Lowes for some small things, and I saw the new Dremel Moto-Saw it is actually a fret saw (100.00) set it u this weekend and was pleastly suprised it cut 3/32 Basswood like it was butter and it is ligt weight about 5lbs. It will not replace my scroll saw but it weighs 40lbs. At my age (74) it is to heavy to lift it up and down it will be mounted permantly when i finish new work table. In meantime the fret saw is working great it gives smooth cuts w/ hardly any vibrations. Don

Hi, you can get the miter gauge and fence from Dremel, you have to call them as it's not on the website.  It cost me about $8.00 for both.

I just got the Dremel saw. haven't used it in anger yet but works well on some trial cuts. Looks to me like a very reasonable buy at the price.

I also see that Dremel do a right angled blade. So the teeth face right/left rather than back/front. This then allows for theoreticaly infinate cuts.

I have had my Moto for about a year now and would be lost without doing my ship modeling.  Glad I read the forim to get the fence and guide.  This is one of the best power tools I have bought and used.  Five Star Buy!
