Just bought it
I just bought this saw a few days ago and haven't used it yet. SO, brand new saw, but I had to file down the offset, which it wasn't supposed to have, on several teeth. If I hadn't have noticed it, it would have left some serious scratches on my work piece. Hopefully, it will perform as advertised when I do start to use it.
Does the Job Intended
I selected this saw because it has no set in the teeth so using it would not mar the varnish. Additionally the flexability allows cutting in confinrd spaces, like an inside corner.
quick, clean, and easy
The description is accurate. The cut is quick, clean, and easy. The best part is how well the design fits the purpose.
Could be better
It was a great saw when I had to only cut a couple of small dowls. But after trying a hundred or so it just does not cut to well I spend a lot of time trying to find the sweet spot or the blade sticks, there has to be a better saw out there and I'll find it
Arrives in questionable state
Bought numerous over years. Often arrive with imperfect (less than flat) blades. Otherwise, cheap, fast cutting, irreplaceable, but very sharp: watch end of cut because blade will finish and quickly advance on to a nearby palm or finger.
