    Man Dirty, I have never seen anything like that in my life. That seems incredibly sweet and extremely dangerous.

    I don’t have anything to break down material that large except my Stihl chainsaw. When I get into large beams I sometimes revert back to the hand saw.

    Guess I forgot to attach the pic – mine is a cheapie that I bought off of Amazon, it’s buried away in a toolbox somewhere in the garage.

    That’s what I see the pro floor guys using a lot. They cut the jam very fast! Seems like they use blades that go right through nails and leave a clean cut. I guess the guard gos up and down for the depth of cut?

    I used to use my small trim saw more than I do now. I seem to use the 6½” saw to do the work it used to.

    Yeah, the guard travels up and down to control the height of the blade. It will cut almost flush with the floor up to about an inch above the floor.

    That’s not a saw I think I need. I used to have a 6½” saw Boss that I cut the table down to ¾” on the small side for those times when I needed a close cut. I guess you could turn that jam saw up vertical and use it for more things?

    Is there any saw you don’t have, that you would want to add to that arsenal ?

    OMG There’s that beast again, I love that saw…. I’m very interested in that power hand saw on the list and it’s really not as many points as I thought it would be. Plus with the right fine blade I think it would work great for carving the Thanksgiving Turkey, Or slicing up a big Prime Rib

    When browsing Bosch tools on Amazon, I came across this power hand saw. I wondered why anyone would need it, especially in light of what an OMT can do. Maybe you guys can educate me 🙂

    Pat, I think you hit the nail on the head. I cannot think of many tasks that this saw would be better than a good OMT.

    What is the preferred dovetail saw for everyone?

    You probably could. I am not a big fan of the saw, at the time I bought it I didn’t have my OMT and I had a lot of jambs to undercut. It works well, cuts a jamb faster than an OMT could but I prefer to use an OMT – much safer. If I had another job where I had to cut 25 door jambs I would dig the jamb saw back out but for just a couple doors I will stick with the OMT.

    I agree with the Multi tool for 1 or 2 but if I had a whole house to do I like the jam saw.

    That’s a good question? I do need some Miter saws because the 2 I’m using now are old and out dated. I will be cutting some 6X6 knee braces soon so the ol Hitachi will work well.

    I bet that old Hitachi would work better than a new Hitachi. I’ve always liked the Hitachi stuff but here the newer isn’t as good.

    The older Japanese made stuff is the better made stuff JMHO. The newer stuff that is farmed out the china is not as good.

    I agree, the older Hitachi tools would take a beating and run forever. The new Hitachi stuff seems pretty cheap.

    Well that sucks. Do you know what the price of those were Red? Looks like something you guy’s could get a lot of use out of.

    I think that the article mentions the normal price of around $ 1500 and the sale price was $ 999. Don’t quote me on that, but I think it was in the article.

    I was emailed that link this morning and it was already closed.

    I think that saw was in Australia, if I am not mistaken. Very cool saw for timber framing and what not.

    I think an OMT would work well more most jambs. It would be hard to justify such a specialized saw. If I used it every day then it would make sense.

    Pat — I am not sure on the flush cut saw — I think it would probably be faster than an OMT? Maybe the blades last longer? I noticed it was on the prize list too.

    Pat, I think that it has been discussed here before, but I have had that saw for a long time and it has it’s uses. It will cut a door jamb much quicker then a OMT can. I’ve used it to flush cut 2×8 joists directly against a house wall. It took a fraction of the time a OMT would have taken.

    Mine came as a kit and included a miter box attachment. I never used that, but for someone without a more dedicated saws, it could handle small mouldings.
