Table saws

In the last 45 years I've seen big table saws and little table saws but never seen a tiny table saw before today. I went through harbor freight today and ran across a 4" wood cutting table saw. The box for this table saw was about the size of a toaster. I wonder what the H anyone would use something this small for. The only thing that comes to mind is model ship builders. Still I don't know how you would push parts through it. I know my fingers are not that little.

a micro table saw for model makers

Not in the class of woodworking tools like we know them, but very familiar to model makers who sometimes are limited to smaller, low noise tools which can be used in apartments:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

woodnthings is right on about model makers using miniature tools.. the good ones don't have miniature prices though. Proxxon is a major player in that market

I saw some of those Proxxon tools at Woodcraft. They're cute as hell. They've got a table saw, band saw, the whole works.

I hate signatures.

With that guard you couldn't cut anything. That is probably the worst one I have ever seen.
