I m curious about how a vintage saw will be better than the Pax. I ve used both and they both cut wood just fine. There seems to be prejudice against pax by people who have never used them. Other than needing a stoning out of the box I have no complaints about mine.

The main reason on the Pax is they are panel saws, so they are shorter which for ripping is a real issue and the handles are far less ergonomic. I don’t know how much taper grinding is done on them, but I doubt they are near the level that the #12 was. Not that they are bad, just that a good #12 is better. The main thing is why pay more if you aren’t getting more?
