Having a little lie-in this morning, I was channel hopping on the
satellite TV and came across QVC who were selling a tiny 400w plunging
circular saw (Exact Mini Circular Saw). This saw has a depth of cut of
up to 13mm (1/2 inch) but looks to be quite a useful tool for cutting
holes in panels or even as a small trimsaw. It sold out in about 1/2
an hour (as it did last time it was on I believe) but has anyone here
bought one of these and what do they think of it. If not can any one
recommend someting similar I could buy in the UK?
Price was £127 UKP so not exactly a throwaway item.

especially at the price they ask. In other words, it seems cut but not all
I was leaning towards this view myself, doesn't seem to do anything I
can't do with a Jigsaw, Bandsaw or regular circular. Just thought I'd
ask in case somone out there has found the killer application for one
