If you live within a reasonable distance of Youngstown, Ohio, I saw this ad for a Hammond Trim-O-Saw at a very reasonable price.  These saw were built for printers to trim lead type, are very precise, and have a cult following. The design is unique and are of sturdy battleship grade construction.  I suggest that you do some background reading first, but these saws are legendary.

This one appears to be decontaminated of lead, but I would carefully inspect it to be sure if you are not prepared to manage that contingency.

I have read reviews on this saw in the past and it is certainly a great saw for the modelmaker.  Would jump all over this if it was in my  area.  Good price too.  I approached many of the local printers looking for one lurking in their basement and was unsuccessful in my search.  Hope a modelmaker can catch up with this one.
