Snagged some crap from first page!

Also snagged some crap. Woo hoo!!!

I don’t normally comment on woot, but when I do…

Be careful with this one. I bought one of these on Amazon last year to just cut up some scrap wood from remodeling (base boards, wood lath, etc…)

(Bare with me as I try to explain all the problems with this saw in my most non-technical wood-working sense)

Roughly all factory assembly oil was left on it when I took it out of the box. The cardboard box was actually saturated with milling oil.

The horizontal angel rotation is difficult to adjust and the furthest (45 degrees) wont lock into place unless you lift the front end of the saw up off of the work surface and turn it.

The vertical pull down and cut mechanism sometimes get stuck while the blade is on.

The front to back slide action gets stuck sometimes.

Knowing similar type saws go for much much more, I wasn’t expecting a $800 saw for this price - but the quality is so low, I’m almost afraid to use it sometimes.

I’ve put it aside to only be used on extremely rough cuts - ie: cutting a 2x4 to brace something - I would not use this saw to cut finish trim for anything, let alone anything requiring precision within 1/4 inch.

Just… a poorly made saw.

There be Crap here:


… and sold out.

Thanks miskreeta. That’s the first one I’ve gotten in on in quite some time.

No problem and congrats, looks like you were the last wooter to woot.

Hope you get some good stuff!

Mind sharing where you found this? Did they change where the BOC sales are? I haven’t seen any on the main page yet. Thanks!

There was this image:

on the front of the main woot page.

It seems to be popping up randomly during the day.

Good luck!

Thank you!
