Customer Reviews of This Item
Nice saw, woefully underpowered, stick to wood or plastics
by Bill VanOrden
Overall good concept, reasonably well executed and works well on soft materials.
<br>Cutting aluminum and brass takes a while and the saw will stall easily if you try to cut the stock at what most of us would consider a normal rate.
<br>I have not tried, nor at this point, consider cutting anything made of steel...
Not the best for right handers
First let me say the saw does the job that I wanted it for. Cutting wood spacers for my model railroad spline sub-roadbed vs hand cutting them (literally hundreds upon hundreds).
<br>But for fine work on other things this saw has a major draw back. It is designed for left handed operators. Most people are right handed. When trying to cut a small piece accurately it is very difficult to see the cut area when your right arm is in the way because that is how you do things.
