Dual-saw


Have seen that 'Dual-saw' advertised on TV. Lots of questions! Any good? Specialised uses? Under powered? May be worm drive? Seems expensive, for what it is, (around $180) as advertised on TV? Main advantage might be the lack of 'kick back' in certain cutting situations? Other?
Also: BTW what about that 'undercutting' reciprocating gadget; enables one to cut close to floor or to cut apertures into, say a wall, etc. Looks like be OK if one was doing flooring? But how robust?
Comments on either/both welcomed. TIA terry

Never used one, so I can't comment. Search this newsgroup - there was a discussion about them not that long ago.

Depends on the unit you buy. I have a Fein MultiMaster, the original manufacturer, and you'd have to pry it out of my cold dead heads. It's an amazingly useful tool.
Fein's patent expired and there are a bunch of knockoffs out there. All the way from the el cheapo Harbor Freight, which is single speed and costs ~$40, on up. The consumable prices have come way down. The Fein blades are expensive, but the knockoff blades fit - same situation, HF really cheap, but I usually go with the Bosch blades.

local (well as least as "local" as we get :) ) did one of there "Does It Work" segments just this past week. Couple of guys did give it "thumbs up" for the metal-cutting but not-so-hot for wood. A 2" chunk of oak bogged it down entirely while it cut through bar and channel as well as expanded mesh, etc., w/ ease...
