There's some nice engineering in this saw, but it traps you in a double insult: Dremel's expensive and short-lived blades. The Ultra-Saw uses Dremel blades only (11mm hole, 3-1/2 to 4-inch diameter).
Dremel is all about spinning abrasives. Maybe that's why the wood cutting blades for this saw are more like grinding wheels than saw blades (see uploaded pic). I don't yet know the durability of the blades, but I have a funny feeling it's not 1000+ cuts, like a carbide tooth saw blade. Dremel says the US500 blade lasts twice as long as the Dremel SM500 blade complained about in Curmudgeon's review ( http://www.amazon.com/review/R2YJ5XQNQJ383S ) of the Dremel SM20-02 120-Volt Saw-Max Tool Kit.
The Ultra-Saw can do a few things your jigsaw can't. You might want this thing in your arsenal, but I don't think it's very good for general use.
Some other 3-3/8" to 5" circular saws have features this one lacks.
- Solid construction, heavy-duty cast alloy shoe.
- Does a few things other saws won't (like undercutting baseboards).
- Left-side blade helps you see the work (if you're right handed).
- Warranty: 2 years
* Only uses Dremel blades
* Dremel wood cutting blades are $15-20 each (or about $10 as part of blade package)
* Dremel wood cutting blades are abrasive based (see uploaded pic). May wear out much faster than a normal carbide saw blade.
- Dremel wood cutting blades put out more fine dust (vs.Read more ›
The base is designed as you'd expect for a circular saw. It has a lock tab so you can adjust the depth. But the bottom is also spring loaded. That makes it work very well for plunge cuts. If you keep the base unlocked, you can place this down with the blade just above the work piece. Then you can push down to the depth you want and keep going. The limitation is that you need to be working on something where you don't need to set a specific depth after plunging. There is no stop for it. It doesn't seem as if it would have been difficult to add one to the design.
The maximum depth is exactly 3/4 inch, not a hair more. When I went to cut a 3/4 inch shelf board, I found some spots where it didn't cut all the way through. I also took a piece of finished molding that's supposed to be 3/4 inch thick, but again, the blade fell a hair short of cutting deep enough. This would be perfect for 1/2 inch plywood, but cutting a 2 by 4 from both sides would be touchy unless things lined up perfectly and if there were no bumps on the wood. Even at that, it would be best to use their guide, but they don't include it so I didn't test it. It wouldn't be difficult for them to make a slightly bigger blade, but the one that comes with it isn't ideal. The "wood" blade looks more like a carbide surfaced one than a typical toothed wood blade. That gives it the advantage that it will minimize kick back.Read more ›
We also have the Rockwell RK3440K VersaCut Circular Saw and my husband absolutely loves it. I bought that for him a couple of Christmases ago and he has used it so much more than he thought he would.
The Rockwell has a laser indicator that helps to make straight cuts and that is one feature that he was surprised at how much he likes. The Dremel Ultra-saw does not have a laser. The Dremel is also a heavier saw, probably because the Dremel has 7.5 amp motor compared to the Rockwell's 4 amp motor. Amazon has videos of both saws so you can see the difference for yourself. Another major difference is that the Rockwell has a spring loaded blade guard. The Rockwell well also has a shop-vac hose attachment for dust.
My husband actually prefers the feel of the Rockwell in his hands. The Dremel is a larger and heavier and he says the handle feels awkward in his hands. The Rockwell has a handle that fits well in your hand.Read more ›
