I've been very pleased w/ the Bosch and Freuds... more so w/ the Freud...
the German made Colts, Bormaxs and Famags are a tough act to follow...

OBG65 Thanks Stick. Looked at some of those brands and most are scalloped. Only one without any scallops or are saw toothed are the W. L. Fuller series 909 and 060. The 909 series has a center point while the 060 don't since according to Fuller it's guided by its circular rim. But the 060 are $60+ each.

DesertRatTom I'd still use a backer board, and I'd clamp the target piece and backer down securely so they behave as one solid piece
