will it cut corregated iron

Asked by: albet
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.

5 in. 2-Blade Circular Saw is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like the saw - have purchased and worn out a dozen or more. But having a huge problem finding new... Like the saw - have purchased and worn out a dozen or more. But having a huge problem finding new ones----This product is impossible to purchase!!! Called Ridgid customer service dozens of times trying to purchase/locate new saws - horrible service!!! They keep telling me that their computer shows an inventory available, but- it can only can be special ordered at a Home Depot location (not online). Home Depot says that it is impossible to order them anywhere until one is returned under warranty. Ridgid will not tell me if this product is even still being manufactured or anything about the current status of its production. What the heck is wrong with that company????? Is it for sale - or not??? Desperate for a "good" replacement saw --- HELP!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw at any price. Have used this saw to cut up 1/4" diamond plate for an old porch/deck renovation. Though I did go through a set of blades the saw performed flawless. Easy to use, very good grip. You have to take your time with any twinsaw. Have used the Sears twinsaw(burned one up) also tried the as seen on TV twinsaw(blades are no good and hard to find, screws fell out of the shield. Home Depot carries the Ridgid blades in stock. Use carefully, they are not cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Saw I bought this saw with the desire to get a tool that could handle demo work and not buck and fight me like a conventional circular saw does. It accomplishes that mission with flying colors. Light and easy to wield, I can accurately slice through a variety of materials with ease. It comes with a rugged tool bag to hold the saw, blades, and other stuff if you want. I recommend getting a can of dry lubricant and lubricating both blades on installation and before any big job - it will extend the life of the blades greatly. I don't cut much metal with it, just drywall, wood, nails etc. and it doesn't buck when you go on a bit of a curve. The other nice thing is you can go forwards as well as reverse and it doesn't matter to this saw. Two things that take getting used to are: holding the guard back to do plunge cuts/radical cuts and putting the cord over one shoulder so as to not have the cord in the way and cut it; these things are minor and expected given the design. Some people might wonder what the need is for a saw like this if they are happy with a circular saw but will love it if you do any kind of demo work. Don't expect to make fine cuts in a perfect straight line with this saw, that's not what it's for. I always had good luck with Ridgid stuff and this tool doesn't disappoint.
