    Hi Bob – its a DIY tool. I mentioned it on my site http://www.aconcordcarpenter.com/2011/03/rockwell-versacut-saw.html

    If you have a circular saw, and a multi-tool I don’t see the need for it

    Not for me. I have a Dremel attachment that allows me to make cuts just like the Versa Cut…I’m thinking never gets used.

    Edit:

    It’s a RotoZip not a Dremel, my mistake.

    Interesting tool that seems to be inexpensive also. Wonder how well this actually works?

    Yeah it would be nice if someone had one and could give a good review of it, by the sounds of it though if you have a couple other tools then it makes this redundant.

    I have the saw. I bought it to cut Hardi siding. It comes with a vac attachment and it worked well at taking away the dust. It is under powered for the application I was using it for so I stopped using it. It would just take too long to cut through the Hardi siding.

    I have not used it since or on any other material. One thing I remember really not liking was the need to push down to expose the blade to cutting depth. I am not sure if that could have been bypassed as I only used it for a couple hours till I ditched it.

    For the extremely rare occasions when this would be better than a circular saw, really only for being able to run a cut closer to an obstruction in my mind, there are better tools. Multitools have already been mentioned.

    It’s not a cheap tool, you can buy a decent circ. saw for the same price, and another $80 for the miter saw attachment sounds crazy to me.

    It looks like a DIY gimmick.

    I was in Menards yesterday listening to a couple of guys talking about this tool. It was clear that neither had used a real circular saw before, because they were considering this tool Because it has Less Power than a 7 1/4″ saw….who does that!?!? Make Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor proud…ugh ugh ugh!

    That would seem like the best application for it . Bigger motor sounds like must for the saw .

    Most tools like this are a gimmick aimed at people who don’t use their tools for a living. They are for the homeowner who doesn’t understand the proper method for doing things.

    Saw a tool exactly like this on an infomercial last night. Makes me think twice about it now.

    Also wouldn’t you have to buy their blades for the tool in the future?

    It’s like a micro plunge saw right?

    Are you saying that there are generic blades you can buy for this unit?

    No I didn’t say anything about the blades. How big is the blade?? I think it’s maybe the same size as my small worm drive?
