I find myself needing a trim saw, and other than for a specific project,
don't know how much use it'll get - read this as I don't want to drop large
coin here..... Do any of you have either of these HF cordless trim saws? I
have to remove a portion of a wooden ceiling and will be working
overhead.... perhaps in more than one way... hehehe... Having something
light and easy to use is pretty high on the list...
Anyway HF has two saws, a 6 1/2" and a 5 3/8 Both'll cut a 2x4 at 90, tho
the smaller one will JUST do it... but the smaller saw won't cut deep enough
at 45 to cut 2x stock...
I only see using the saw to cut the boards out of the ceiling and perhaps
around the shop.... So most of the time I'd be cutting 4/4....
Both saws are priced at 70 bucks. An extra 18v battery is 30 bucks. The
larger saw has a 5/8 arbor, while the smaller one has 10mm... would the
smaller saw be difficult to find a blade for... think would it be in stock a
the BORG or a borgian equivalent?
By comparison, A 18v DeWalt is $230, the 12 v is 160... I expect spare
batteries would be 50 bucks or better...
Here's HF's 6" saw...
The 5 3/8
And finally, here's what they are getting for a 12V 5 3/8 DeWalt
So I can get either saw and a spare battery for a bit over a hundred......
Gimme your shots!
