I need to dice some oak into chips, and this really would be far easier ans safer with a bandsaw. Buying or even hiring is extortionate for something that might take 30mins or so

I'm guessing that you and I have different understanding of "chips" when in relation to wood: if I wanted woodchips, I'd throw some wood through a woodchipper...

What do you want to do with the bits? Obviously if you're actually going to make dominos you'll need an accurate set up.

I planning on taking a blow torch to them.

The bits I have don't take kindly to a chop saw.
