Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whatmepodo Excellent addition to my shop .
I have been needing this saw for a long time and finally got a good deal on this one, and it is no disappointment. It performs as well as any that I have used previously. Shipping was very fast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mike737d This saw works really good, so far.
I use this item as a file to do turbine work. It does a very good job on the finishes of the turbine blades. The price was very cheap.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seagull369 So far so good
I've used this a couple of times already and have no complaints. Well on second thought, blade changing requires adjusting TWO Allen screws instead of just one, which is a bit annoying. The low air consumption of this tool has me been pleasantly surprised & thusly I've been able to get away using a pancake-style compressor without much fanfare.
The saw will accept standard sized hacksaw blades (if you chop them down to your desired length, of course), so fortunately I've been able to skip buying the more expensive blades the tool calls for. Even though the (cutting) stroke tends to be a bit short with these 'body' saws in general, I still was able to use mine to cut off some 1/2" sized bolts with a little time and patience. The compact size of this tool means it will work in tight spots where a Sawzall, a smaller "Ridgid Fuego One Handed Reciprocating"-type saw or even dremel w/cutoff wheel WILL NOT, which is frankly why I bought the thing. Those bolts I cut off were in just such a location .
I should mention I've had little to no issue with the saw bogging down (blade stalling) while using, even when applying moderate pressure. I can't say that for some other brands I've tried. The 2 year warranty offered is pretty generous for this type of tool.
Buy yourself some nice bi-metal hacksaw blades with the appropriate TPI for your project and you'll be happy.
