Silly Poto. Have you been drinking those plankton samples again?

Would the instruction on time be increased to 3-1/2 hours, then?

Mike, I'm curious about the saw blades -- I think that I recall that they are custom made in Japan? That would preclude typical hand sharpening so how far into the future will replacements be available? Thanks.

Our blades are indeed made in Japan by the saw maker we have been using for almost 10 years now. The blades are too brittle and fine to be hand sharpened so we so suggest replacing.
We have a huge supply of blades, and plan on keeping the blades in stock for as long as we are all around. John is good friends with the saw company owner and has pledged that he will keep the blades on hand even if something drastic happened..like if Festool bought BCTW.

Then you will be putting in OT figuring how to make the CT-16 hold Centrotec bits...

(If you came out with an adapter I wouldn't be upset. )
