If you are using larger balsa wood but want the safety and precision of a cutter, the Lumberjack is the perfect choice. Starting with a solid 8" x 14" base of MDF, the Lumberjack features a 12" built-in ruler and angles marked at 10-degree increments from 0 to 90 degrees – handy tools when building a detailed structure project. Metal bars block access to the blade to ensure safety during use. Cuts balsa wood up to 1/8" thick and 3/4" wide. Replacement blades sold separately.
