    Bought that exact brace to replace 2 stolen 15 years ago from a storage unit during a move. Took a while to collect some drills but worth it. The level of drilling control is unparalleled.

    Have the 3 -3.5Ē birdcage to keep the mass nearer the blade; certainly deep enough for any dovetails I will cut. It makes the saw feel very nimble. The wonderful blade tension means you break far...
