Hey icit, Harbor Feight has a hobby size table saw at a very reasonable price Looks like it would do the job nicely. As far as a hobby size sander, why not try this. Get a Dremel drill press and dremel tool. Drill a hole in a smooth board that is slightly larger than a Dremel sanding drum. Place the drum in the drill press and line up the hole in the board with the sanding drum. Lower the drum so it is just barely down in the hole. Now you have a Dremel, a hobby drill press, and a hobby size spindle sander!Smile [:)]

Try to find someone that carries the Olfa line of hobby tools. They have a hand saw that can't be beat; cuts resin cleanly and evenly; does even better with plastic. They have a hobby knife that puts X-Acto's to shame.

Late note: Here's the Olfa home page

Take a look at They specialize is small tools for the modeler. In addition, Dremel has many accessories and add-ons to turn your motor tool into specialized tools like routers, drill presses, etc.

Hobby saws and sanders
Posted by icit on Tuesday, September 30, 2003 7:42 PM
Hey people, I'm looking for a good hobby table saw and sander appropriate for working in plastic and soft metal for scratch-building. I'm particularly interested in small ones, ones that would fit on a table top or my model table. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
