Customer Reviews of This Item
I just have to say that all the advertising you see in the Micro-Mark catalog is correct. I have used this saw for several years and I love it. I would order another one in a heartbeat if this one ever quit. It is just great for small projects. I build dollhouses and furniture to fit in them and many boxes. It is probably the best tool I have purchased (and I am 71).
Fantastic little saw!!
I bought this saw about 10 years ago and it has worked flawlessly ever since. I've cut plastic, thin brass, hardwoods (up to 1/2 inch) & plywood (up to 3/4) with it and had no problems. I really like the fact that it is variable speed (although plastics can still tend to melt a bit along the edge). I bought the table saw, a complete set of blades, dado cutting system, blank blade plates, taper jig, and the ripping gauge set (that new Super value package was not offered back then). The only Item I've worn out is the blank blade plates - that reminds me I need to order another set.

I bought this little saw at least 12 years ago and it worth every single penny I spent on it. Cut 3/4" wood/plywood, 1/2" plastics with no problem. I even cut 3/8" aluminum flat bar with few passes. Love it.
Use for multiple types of materials
I’ve been using the saw for many years now and still running strong. I build giant scale RC planes and use this saw for cutting several different types of material from plywood, plastic, brass and even G-10 fiberglass. The G-10 up to about 1/8” and up to about ¼” plywood. Since I use many different types of material, I change out the blades often. Really easy to do. I never really timed it, but I don’t think it takes me more than a few minutes to change a blade. The speed adjustments help as well with different materials. Also, the vacuum attachment in the rear really helps to reduce dust. I big difference when I forget to turn my vacuum on. I probably push this unit to its maximum, but it hasn’t disappointed me. Definitely a primary “go to” tool in my shop.
