The concept makes a lot of sense. A small rotating blade at the end of a stick. I thought: "how bad can it be?" What did I expect? Not much. I got waaaay less than that. A 4 amp motor isn't going to do much, but if geared down, it could be useful in some applications....and for 69 bucks...what-the-hey? It cut about 1 to 1 1/2" into 1/2" acrylic and the motor would trip. It would restart in a couple of seconds and trip again. Sloooooow feed? 1 1/2" and trip. Canadian Tire was kind enough to refund my money. They're good that way.
Too bad, really, it is such a good idea. Imagine Festool or Fein doing something like that, eh? (Yup... becoming a snob.)
BTW, I already had a couple of Makitas 5091D's.. very useful with their carbide blades. A priceless little saw. I wish it was tailed. I got sick and tired of buying their seemingly abandoned 12volt batteries. The bulk of their operations are now done with my Fein MultiMaster. Am I missing anything that somebody else manufactures? Preferably a plug-in device?
