I have one of those saw blades and I almost never use it. A small jigsaw or scroll saw end up being more useful for cutting wood for a boat.

That saw will work good for cutting any small stock. I use mine quite abit especially when you dont have jigsaw or scroll saw. The 1/16 skins a exacto nife will cut but you will have to make several passes. If you cannot get a cheap scroll saw you might want to stay away from 1/8 ply and use 1/4balsa and laminate with 1/16 ply. The 1/8 ply is tough to cut with the hand tools. In a pinch If you can get a jig saw this would help to cut your bulkheads. If not you might want to use the other method of 1/4 balsa 1/16 laminated to the 1/4 for strength for bulkheads. just make sure you seal the boat very good. Dave

For the bulkheads & all the 1/8 wood I have a table saw that should work for those. I will get some 45 min epoxy to seal & glue the hull together. Now for a motor mount where can I get one for an O.S. 18 engine?

Those razor saws are useful with the little miter box that you can buy with them. Great for cuttin 1/8 x1/8 1/4x1/4and bigger stock for a nice clean squared end.

I like Speedmaster hardware, including their engine mounts. You can get them directly from [link=http://www.rossisales.com/]Rossi Sales[/link] or G&M models at (630) 279-2451. If you don't happen to have the tap needed to make threads in the mount, I believe Gary at G&M will do them for a small fee.

I would use some good hardware on it fullers makes a nice kit also. If you want to save a few bucks you could make your own engine mounts. Check out my thread I used some aluminum angle stock just make sure its thick enough so it dont flex. Save you thirtyfive bucks or so. You can probably find at Lowes or Home Depot in the hadware Isle theres usually a steel rack. The only thing is you will get more vibration. But you can wrap reciever in foam rubber to take care of the vibe. Hitec makes a nice vibe matt for there recievers. Dave

Them are some good mounts I have some with the dampeners on my big boat. Just make sure you have the mount, engine,flywheel,belt to start, or you might go with the pull starter. If you use a belt when you set the motor you leave just enough room to move it out from under the motor. Also the mount and engine will help when you make and install the stringers for the engine to bolt to. I made my area on the stringers where I thought the engine would sit a half inch or so taller than the print that way to make sure they would work right. Or you might find out you have to remake the stringers. The extra you can always dremel of after you see where the engine mount will bolt to the stringers. Dave
