This is about wood, but has a model engineering connection. I want to
make some wagons for my garden railway and need some small sections of
wood -down to about 4mm x 8mm to represent some scale planks of wood.
I think the cheapest way to produce these would be to cut them from
larger pieces of wood. What would be the best machine to do this
with, a small circular saw or a bandsaw -and what sort of blade should
I be using in either case. The circular saw route has the advantage
that I have an old cast iron bench top circular saw that I could
probably rig up to a motor and put a fence on (thus minimal outlay,
which is good). But I don't want to do this if it is the wrong tool
for the job. Any suggestions?
