That's a petty cool looking little saw. There are a lot of times I'd rather not drag out the Skill saw for something little
There is no such thing as too many cool tools! :cheers:

Well it seems to be a very colorful tool, but what exactly is it supposed to do? I could see it as being excellent at slicing frozen bacon or perhaps at removing a left index finger rather quickly, but other than that I don't see how it relates to building ukuleles. I'm sure you will find a use.

Judging from the picture it is intended to cut mitres....... so maybe shaping headstocks......... ;)

Ken, just pick up one of your wonderful sopranos and you'll feel better :). While doing so, consider that there are many many people who do the same, and get the joy of music from your creations. That's a nice thought isn't it:D?

Or you could make a jig and use it for fret slots ?

I think it will work well upside down fitted under a bench used as a mini table saw...Just a thought, ??

Actually it looks like a fun tool. I secretly want one myself. Perhaps it is an answer looking for a problem? I'm sure you will find the perfect problem.

The track that comes with it for mitres etc, can be set at 90 deg. and the depth of cut can also be set..so it wouldnt take much work to convert it for cutting fret slots.

Two index pins and two scales fan frets would be fairly simple too.

Now I'm getting interested in this thread. Will it take a 6" blade Ken? Like the one SMD sells as in here:

http://www.stewmac.com/Luthier_Tools/Types_of_Tools/Saws/Fret_Slotting_Table_Saw_Blade.html

With an indexing pin in the slide it could be... zip! zip! zip! etc. perfect fretboard and faster than a table saw .... Trying to think why it wouldn't work: Would it wobble maybe? Does it adjust 90 degrees to the slide? This tool has potential.

I remember Ken posting here that he'd had to clean out his band saw, 'cause it smelled fishy after cutting some frozen salmon on it. Pete Howlett chimed in with, "You're kidding, right?"

I was going to comment earlier, but thought 'what do I know?!
Seeing as none of you knowledgeable lot has chimed in, is the blade round the correct way? Would seem to chip the top surface if used that way?
