Yeah, I'm rapidly picking up on the need for a variety of blades. The 470 is the one I'm looking at as the best compromise (for me) between cost and features. I wish there was a recon available but $149 for a new one is doable. I'm leaning toward the barrel grip version because of my arthritic hands. I can't make a tight fist anymore so I think a larger diameter would be easier to grip.

Chuck...I bough the 470 barrel for hand comfort also...some carpal probe.

The 470 is noticeably heavier than what you have now but the extra weight really helps. The saw moves very easy with very little pressure.

Try CPOOUTLETS.COM for reman.

There is a video on YouTube that compares saws...search JS470EB...

Points to Ponder...

LEARNING - the decision you make to know and
understand more about some thing.

TIME - the thing that gets in the way of learning.

The best blades that I have found are Festool's, yes they are pricey, but they stay sharp longer than any of the others I have used in over 40 years in the trades.
