Is this appropriate for my project?

This question is from 5.5 Amp 1/4 in. Corded RotoSaw Spiral Saw
Asked by
Fresno, CA

June 14, 2016
I need to cut away a section of 3/4" plywood countertop underlayment, to revise cabinet layout, pry it out then put down a fresh section of plywood after I've replaced the offending cabinet. After that I will be laying down new Hardi board or cement backer board before tiling.
QUESTIONS:
1) Will the Rotosaw work to start close to the wall then forward to cut back to front thru 3/4" plywood? (then later to cut the new sink hole) If yes, what bit is recommended" (I doubt a saber saw or even my reciprocating saw would get close enough to the wall to completely cut away the plywood which is why I'm considering the Rotosaw)

2) Same basic question for Hardiboard or cement backer-board. Will this work to cut it, and what bit is appropriate to cut the sink hole into the backer board?

Answer: 
The RotoSaw will not cut flush to the wall. To cut plywood use the XB-MP2 Multi-purpose bit.
To cut cement backer-board use XB-DC1 Duracut Bit or the XB-UL1 Underlayment Bit.

Hey, CatLady. This isn't the right tool. You won't be able to start close enough to the wall. What you'll want for a job like this is an oscillating tool equipped with a straight saw blade. It will take quite a while but the results will be neater. What I would do, with tools galore, is start the cut forward to back with a circular saw and finish it off at the wall with the oscillating tool.

Hey, CatLady. This isn't the right tool. You won't be able to start close enough to the wall. What you'll want for a job like this is an oscillating tool equipped with a straight saw blade. It will take quite a while but the results will be neater. What I would do, with tools galore, is start the cut forward to back with a circular saw and finish it off at the wall with the oscillating tool.
And this isn't the best tool to cut HardiBacker with, either, although RotoZip sells bits for cutting tile with this machine. You'll be using the .25 thickness for a countertop, which will thankfully make your job easier. The simplest way to get it done for the straight cut and the sink hole is to draw the cutout outline on the HardieBacker, score it deeply with a utility knife, and beat out the cutout with a hammer. You can also use a carbide or diamond blade on an oscillating tool to make the score deeper. Please watch the attached video for a demonstration.
If you can't get the precision you want that way, you can use a diamond turbo blade on an angle grinder, which would be the professional's choice for that sink cutout. The angle grinder takes quite a while to get used to for most people. Doing the cutout that way will also generate a lot of dust that you shouldn't be breathing, however, so do it outside and wear a disposable paper particulate respirator and safety glasses. Read Less

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I hope you read this before you make your decision This tool really suffers from mismarketing. It was originally thought up to create cutouts in existing drywall cleanly, precisely, and safely. It can follow a line better than anything else while doing this. It is of extreme utility in this capacity. For homeowners, It is of slightly less remarkable capacity in making precision electrical cutouts in drywall as it feels out the contours of the boxes behind with a pilot point. That takes some skill and practice, and it doesn't do that well at all if the boxes were mounted by an amateur or made of plastic. So, the small scale of electrical cutouts generally lends itself better to the jab saw. Professionals love the RotoZip because it can do that task faster and more cleanly in experienced hands, but really, for the DIY homeowner who does it once in a blue moon, doing electrical cutouts slowly and steadily with the jab saw and perhaps a low-powered rotary tool is much more useful. Again, if you're drawing a line on mounted drywall and cutting into it, buy this tool, not one of the knockoffs or copies. You really can't judge it well until you try your hand at this simple task with it, and also tried to accomplish the same task using anything else. Sure, it can accomplish a large range of cutting tasks with different bits. I've tried it for some of those cutting tasks. But for this one tricky task, following a cutout line in drywall there are absolutely no substitutes for this tool. This is why you should buy it, not the other reasons. December 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roto Zip Works great doing any sort of remodelling project. From cutting holes in countertops to cutting drywall. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool for drywall Bought the rotozip for a very large drywall project. This tool is great. It took a little bit to get the hang of tracing around the plastic boxes (metal ones are super simple), but the time savings and perfect size/location on the first try every try more than pays for itself. I can guarantee I would have wasted more money is drywall mistakes than this tool costs. Not to mention all of the time. My only complain is that the bits don't last that long - but they aren't that expensive. I hung an entire floor of 1,110 sq ft and probably used up 10 bits or so. But in all fairness - you are cutting through gypsum rock. I also bought the hole cutting attachment, and it worked great for cutting all of the holes for my in ceiling speakers. Definitely would buy again and would recommend it to others. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes hanging drywall easy after hanging several rooms of drywall I finally broke down and bought myself a rotozip. Now I'm asking myself why I didn't buy it sooner! I don't know how many sheets of drywall I've ruined cutting with a hand saw, but this solved the problem and probably cut my time by a third. Your sanity is worth it. Get the right tool for the job. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great addition to toolbox. I had been using a lighter duty dremel tool for cutting speaker cutouts in drywall and it gave out. I got plenty of use out of that tool and can say nothing bad about it. I purchased this RotoSaw as a replacement based on the larger motor and somewhat more sturdy design and feel. This tool puts less wear on drywall bits based on the fact that in the dremel the bits always looked burnt after very little use. In this tool after 25 holes the bit is still shiny and looks unused. Based on the higher speed if your depth is off you may break bits is some circumstances if you hit a metal plate or nail in the wall. I am very satisfied with the purchase. May 12, 2015
