Colin Robson: I still prefer my old hand tools. Quieter, cheaper, quicker, less space, more reliable, and more fun
rcj1942: You didn't review it. You just showed it to us. You need to give us more information. How much blade deflection is there? How fast will it cut? How does it compare to a band saw? Inform me with the information I need to know to make a purchase.
Adam Pierce: Shame on Rockwell!
Michael Miller: Didn't see the date on this video and went out and bought one this morning. took it to a small job and its going back to the store first thing in the morning. Couldn't cut a straight line in 3/4" wood to save my life. Current saw is not the one ion this older video. Plastic top, not metal, no wall rack, everything possible scaled down to crap. I thought I might use it for a couple of weeks till my new table saw came in and then give it to my wife for crafts but I'm not that pissed at her.
AlwaysHaveAplanB: … that'd be an 8” circle ….. just saying. Rockwell looks really slick - it’s portable does a number of things and weighs less than 20 lbs. I could use that a lot.
Mike Atencio: Bought mine at Lowes for $25.00 - only missing the blades. Came with the wall mount so no complaints here. Great tool to make wind chimes, model sailboats, do some plumbing repairs and other HOME small workshop stuff. For the price, it makes up for any issues.
CCDF566556: can you tilt the table?
Robert Long: Try and cut maple or oak at 3/4" good luck it won't do it like a bandsaw
Joe Zoc: How does it handle other types of wood besides particle board?
Tools In Action: With a nice metal jigsaw blade you should have no problem
tleav61: I want to be able to cut 01 tool steel. The thickness is generally 1/8" steel. Is this a good unit for that?
mtm: Cool but that circle wasn't 4". Are you sure the circle guide doesn't ask for the radius? So in your case if you wanted a 4" circle, the guide should be set at 2"?
Ulises Victoria: I make wooden pens. I think this would be perfecto to make my own blanks out of larger pieces of wood, right?
Tools In Action: This tool would work
Fat Jan: Is this tool ideal to use on bamboo flooring? The planks are 3' x 4".
Ken Bee: I have one of the saws and really like it for what it is used for. My only minor complaint is the miter gauge. It has a tendency to move thereby not getting a straight cut. The blades that come with it are junk so I bought some Bosch blades for cutting various materials and use it to cut about anything now. I build boxes and clocks and the saw is ideal for cutting the small parts I use with any kind of wood. Using the right blades it will cut very small radius's as well as mild steel.
Christopher Kelly: @pptgtool Thank your for the reply - your experience with the machine is of greater value than the Rockwell customer service who could only say "Capacity is 1.5 inches" ... meanwhile the pinewood derby block is 1.75"... thanks again.
Tools In Action: @Gibblestein The Blade Runner will work perfect for Pinewood Derby cars, it even says so on the Rockwell website.
