Default Rockwell Table Top Saw

Anyone ever us the rockwell table top saw? Looks like a jigsaww mounted upside down?

One is for sale near me and could get it cheap, and I was thinking it might be quieter then a table saw for the townhouse, if I could use it to segment and cut blanks etc...

I have one. It's actually as noisy as my table saw, and not accurate enough for segmenting, IMO.

I have one too. I would say mine is nearly as loud as my table saw also. I also wouldn't call it a precision cutter either, but that could be the user

If you want a small dedicated pen maker's saw, then consider this: the MicroLux® Mini Tilt Arbor Table Saw For Benchtop Hobby Use. A lot of pen makers are using it.
