will it cut corregated iron

Asked by: Anonymous
It will cut iron, but the blade tips are standard carbide. They will dull with hard use. Lube sticks are scarce so you may burn up your blade with tough iron cutting. In my opinion the blade will burn up before the saw gives out.

After 15 minutes I was getting two kerf lines with a thin, very sharp sliver of metal that looked liked it passed between the two blades. Tried a new set of blades. Same issue. Now it's back in the box headed to Home Depot. I bought this saw as a alternative to buying a used Dualsaw650 from Ebay. I should have taken the chance on Ebay. Not near the saw as the 650. Maybe ok if all you want to cut is very light sheet metal. The Dualsaw can cut through 2x2x1/4 steel angle without kickback or a dual kerf. Don't waste your money or time on this saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Purpose I have now used this saw for two major projects and it has excelled at both. The first was the removal of a whirlpool bathtub, that I had to cut free then cut in half to remove from the bathroom. It cut through the fiberglass with ease and made quick work of it. The second was the adjustment of some kitchen cabinets that needed a new toe kick. Again, quick work. The only downside to this saw is the lack of a shoe or mechanism to ensure you are square to the blade. I found it is easy for the blade to cut out of vertical alignment if I don't hold it perfectly. But, since this seems to really be designed for demolition, it serves it's purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good saw at a good price I had a friend that purchased one of "those" other saws seen on television and this one performs much better at a fraction of the price. One thing I wasn't aware of is that this particular saw is not meant for detail type cutting, as it doesn't have the mechanics to square the blade to the surface. It's great for demolition work. It comes with some lube sticks for cutting metal which I haven't had a chance to use yet. I would highly recommend using a spray on DRY lubricant between the blades every time. I tried with and without and it performs much faster and MUCH quieter with the dry lube. The total width of the cut is the standard 1/8". Each blade is 1/16th".

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Know what you are buying This saw is not a circular saw replacement. It is for cutting material which a traditional circular cannot handle. I found it to be great at cutting sheet metal and laminate. The lack of a base makes it difficult to cut a straight line and control your depth. I highly recommend wearing safety gear when cutting metal it really throws metal chips! The unit is also too bulky which makes cutting in tight areas or up against objects next to impossible. It is well built and I don’t need to talk about the warranty. I do have a big problem with the saw being moved out of the stores to online only and have you tried to pick up a blade.

Leaves a very smooth edge on both sides of material cut. Bought extra blades, but have not had to use yet.You will put your old circular saw in your next yard sale. I realy love this saw. Very we;ll balanced.

It cut through metal fast and straight. I use it for more things now, but it does not replace other saws for specific applications. It is a great add on saw that does a lot. Great product.
