Nice and cheap, too. How does this thing work? You saw up and down with the handle, while you turn the piece?

Maybe that is what this old contraption was supposed to be.. Confused

Spot the similarity with the saw frame in Steven's post?

Yes, that's how it works.  Sometimes they are mounted where the plane of the frame is parallel to the work table.  The piece you're cutting then is directly in front of you and easier to see.

Thanks.

I have not done marquetry. From what I've read, I thought the method was to saw at a slight angle. The Knew Concepts saw -- which looks amazingly well built, and probably is -- seems to to fixed at 90 degrees, assuming the pieces are mounted to the edge of a flat table. Am I missing something?

Aram,
The pieces are cut using a saw 90 degrees to the wood, glued face down to a piece of paper, then a mastic is applied to fill gaps, the surface leveled, then glued to the substrate, and finally the paper is scraped off. That, in a nutshell, is how classic marquetry is done. There is much more, but you get the idea.

Inlays are where you can use the angled cut to make up for the saw kerf (usually 15 degrees).
Semper Audere!
