Hi Hank,

Try to match the saw to the scale of work. The saw you want for sawing, say, shop-made veneer or other thin stuff, is different than what you would use to saw a Drawer opening out of a 4/4 front rail.

To illustrate, I have two azebikis:

(1). 90mm/ 0.018 thickness/ rip=12ppi

(2) 75mm/ 0.013 thickness/ rip=14ppi.

Now, the 75mm saw has an entirely different feel than the 90mm, due to the 50% difference in plate thickness, and the finer toothing. Azebikis look alike, but they’re very different.

Am sorry I can’t make a specific recommendation, but did want you to have a way to think about what you’re looking for.
