    Choosing the right (pegas) blade

    I have been using Proxon blades on my scroll saw because it´s what I can get locally. 99% of my work are puzzles of 20mm (3/4") thickness. No. 3 and 5 are my sizes to go for.

I want to make one (typical 4 leg type) from square tubes and I've been thinking of filling the tubes with concrete for maximum stability. I know it might weight a ton, but it will be on casters so moving it around wont be...
