      For the price, well worth the purchase in my mind.

      I'll prob. laminate some contrasting g10 spacers, and then some g10 scales. I was thinking of using hollow pins purely for aesthetic reasons. I don't suspect it will be too hard to work with. :)

      Hmm, I think it is more the wear it has on tooling vs the in-ability to cut it. Yet, I will find out. :)

      I await the results. I have used 1/8" g10 once. It took me several scroll saw blades to cut one frame out. It wore the teeth off so be prepared for that. The files handled it fine for shaping. Also you want a respirator with changeable filters. Everything I have read is that g10 is nasty stuff for the lungs.

      I was planning on using a jigsaw with metal cutting blades, but worse case... I'll just use a manual mill at my friends shop. :)

      A mill sounds like fun. I was using wood blades which does make a difference. With the jigsaw just have extra blades on hand. It sounds like a great design that you have in mind.
