    Hiya!

    I'm afraid I can't help with your question (I bought a cheapo Ferm one, and it works OK for the very small amount of work I ever do with it), but welcome to the forum!
    Cheers,

      There are quite a few going cheap on ebay at the moment including the Ferm that Scorch mentioned. if you want to do small, tight shapes you need to go for one that takes pinless blades. Blades come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and you are best getting a number of them and trying out for yourself as it is a personal thing which works best for you. Best ones are probably Hegner nowadays, Price buys weight and as with all saws the blade is what makes the most difference.
