Rockwell BladeRunner- Review

What do you think about this video?

Gianni Copecchi: is there also a more professional version of this tool?

Scott Harmon: I bought the same model a few years back, and I enjoy using it. I went into this knowing that it was an upside-down jigsaw, but it fit my needs for cutting silhouettes freehand from long, thin stock that would be a pain to work using a hand held jigsaw. I tossed the blades that came with it and went with a brand name that rhymes with "gosh." I've used it to do cross, rip, and curved cuts in wood; cut and trimmed PVC pipe; trimmed metal bolts; and sized some small ceramic tiles for a kitchen back splash project. I got the results I expected each and every time.

It does have some cons: If you are doing curved or circular cuts you have to plan your route, because the arm mount WILL get in the way if you are not careful. Also, the mitre gauge that comes with it fits loose in the slots and tends to go off true when pressure is applied.

As for the gloves/no gloves issue, I don't use gloves in most cases. However, I got a doozy of a burn blister on my right index finger when I was trying to trim a bolt using a metal cutting blade, so I will make an exception in that case.

I have seen the "new" version of the X2 at my local box store, and just from its outer appearance I would not consider buying it. It looks flimsy, the arm mount has moved to the center/rear of the table, and the table itself is plastic.

PS: I know I'm writing this about 3 years too late, but great review, TIA!

Gerardo Santos: Nice I was stuck what mine, problem resolve

truth be told: I just found one of these in a garbage bin. It's like brand new, works great, can't wait to use.

MRMkodi: I got the blade runner 2 badass.

alex richard: I am the only one to tought it was a gun replica from blade runner on the thumbnail then look quick parts of the video to realise its totally not about the movie ?

MrToolhunter: Not sure if you've noticed but there have been two new models of the BladeRunner since your video. The first one came from Rockwell where they replaced the metal table with a plastic one and removed the variable speed. The latest is that it is now being made and sold under the Worx brand. Not sure if you are up to it, but a review of the new version might attract some new viewers as Worx tends to promote their products well. Scot

Wild American: What happens when you want to cut wood that is wider than 2 feet? Won't that arm get in the way?

satish jha: The biggest 4" circle I've ever seen.

Gerald Lipchik: Do you need the sled accessory that amazon offers?

Gerald Lipchik: Does it cut a 2x4 ok? Do magnets stick to the table?

breathe and squeeze: that wasnt no 4 inch circle, more like 8 inch.

breathe and squeeze: this was a great review. unlike the world of youtube reviews these days, where they just unbox something and read the features right off the box.

Eliane Vaccavo: That's not wood.

CMG: your site it wierd

Red Gemini Arts: I can't find that item for sale ANYWHERE

Red Gemini Arts: WoW never heard of the attachment. Thanks for sharing

BrenticusMaximus1: All the portability of a table saw and none of the convenience of the jigsaw.

Willy Kunkerfunk: What kind of gloves are you wearing?
