    Well Hank, you didn't list how many amps each tool draws.......
    But it sounds like fun!

    The brace is a 923-10 which I understand is one of the popular Stanley models, it is in very near new condition.

    The Veritas dovetail saw is 20 point rip, it was gifted to me and I pass it on with the same expression of gratitude as I received it.
    It is also in nearly perfectly new condition.

    Now Hank has me curious what the surprise contest will be...

    Yes, you can bring your own saw or use one of the prize saws if you don't have your own. We might have to handicap Richard (Graywolf) by making him use one of our saws but that is still up to debate. Richard is way too good at this kind of contest.

    Just kidding about that Richard - maybe...

    This sounds like fun regardless but Phils saw might be unwieldy it's a little heavy.
    Nothing beats a try but a failure, failure is an opportunity to learn.

    Yes, you may bring your own saw(s)
    That could be the fun part of it - especially if you are willing to share

    You will be forced to do two "runs" one with the "competition" saw and one with your own and your time (and accuracy) will be averaged...
