Only One Problem
They do not make a wood cutting saw blade for this saw. It was explained to me that the reason they don't is because the saw doesn't bevel. Otherwise a great saw.

Great tool. I only wish the table was adjustable for cuts outside of 90 degrees.

Perfect for the sheet metal industry
Saves on carpal tunnel for cutting spiral pipe, S & drives, holes in duct, instead of using snips. Cutting metal like a carpenter, sure could've used it 20 years ago, would've got a lot more done.

Awesome versatile saw with Oshlun blade
Awesome metal saw with the included blade, add some Oshlun wood blades which are available with the correct arbor size and you have one saw that will do about anything.

A must have!!!!!!!
I really don’t know how I lived without this saw. I work a lot with EMT pipe and use to cut it with a sawzall and definitely that worked but since my purchase it takes me half the time to cut. The other bonus is that it makes such a clean cool cut. Anyone that works with metal need to at least give this puppy a try.

Fire Rescue metal cutting saw
My fire company recently purchased the fuel metal cutting saw to use on our new rescue truck. After training with it, it is amazing. Cuts the roof sheet metal with ease. We bought a second one for our engine as well.

Great time saving tool for me.
From cutting electrical wire to conduit and Strutt it preforms great. The only problem I have is seeing through the guard to find my mark on the material to make the cut accurate.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
