Questions & Answers

is this a cut out tool or a screw gun?

Asked by: JackGlux
This is a cut out tool. Works great on drywall but if you use it for Particleboard or plaster it will go through blades fast. Still cuts great but you will need to change bits often.

can I use this to cut a 3/16 thick plexiglass?

Asked by: akc
Maybe with the right bit, but controlling it and keep it in a straight line would be too difficult.

can you use it with a cutting wheel

Asked by: Hawaiiboy1
Yes it can, matching the appropriate collet to the cutting wheel shaft diameter. Keep in mind this tool only had 1 speed so make sure what you're cutting doesnt require more or less power.
