I'm glad to see that craftsman has something similar/more powerful,
I'm just wondering DOES IT OVERHEAT EASILY as couple of the reviews of
this product say it does, check it out:
Well, let's see
Three easy payments of $59.99 - comes to 3 cents shy of $180
so let's call it $180 even.
Then there's the $39.99 S&H which we'll round up to an even $40
to keep the math easier.
So the "In You Hands Price Tag is "only" $220.
You can get a pretty nice "regular" circular saw - that
will produce nice finished cuts - or deal with 2x4s and
4x4s - for that kind of money - and a well known
brand name - with an established reputation - for
that kind of money.
Anyone here planning on using a hand held circular saw - which
doesn't have a "table"/"foot" - but comes with an edge guide (?)
- and "lubricating sticks" - to - cut through nails - or steel pipe?
And when you're trying to get someone to believe that the
finish of its cut in wood is "craftsman like" - don't provide
the close up of the cut - that looks far from "craftsman like".
I couldn't find any info on the blade diameter or the max
thickness it can cut - something I WANT TO KNOW before
I'd fork over $220.
I'm going to pass on this one - too much hype and not enough
I saw the infomercial very early on a Saturday morning but I was in a
hurry and did not have the time to do research on it. You can say the
hype in the informercial got me this time, but to be fair, I saw
enough of its potential to order this dualsaw from twinstar for
evaluation and had high hopes that it's worthy enough to keep.
I got it shipped to me 3 days ago and well the first impression is
that it has too many plastic components and won't be too durable if
it's used repetitively for big jobs. It's a tool that is probably
useful in certain situations that call for its multi-purpose
capability to quickly help you the task at hand without having to go
rent or get the professional grade power tools. In addition, the
dualsaw label is a cheap piece of sticker that will fall off. On the
blades, I'm not too worry about its durability since the replacement
for quality blades in general is expensive and well in the $50-$70
range, dualsaw priced their replacement blade is slightly below that
so it shouldn't be too bad, it's the motor, the plastic housing and
how well it can handle a minor drop to ground and etc.. Come to think
of it, if this product is discontinued the replacment blades would
also be discontinued .. which raises concern.
It's too bad I don't have the time to just go out and find all sort of
different materials to try this saw out. I'm more practical and was
hopeful that when I get the saw that there is a big contracting
project that my guys can actually test out its usefulness but we don't
have project to work on so due to the current economic situation.
To conclude, I'm wary enough to start searching for reviews of this
product online. So far no blogs or critics sites are raving about it
and to be fair there were also no real evidence of bad experiences ...
it's a fairly new product so there isn't much reliability testimonies
nor complaints. Again my only impression on it is that it's not built
to last or continuous heavy duty use.
I would give it some time if I were you before buying it even with the
money back guarantee promises to save yourself some time. I'm
returning my this coming Monday. If things doesn't go smoothly as
they have advertise wrt their return policy, I will try to go back
here and tell you all about it.
