That looks like an 'accident' waiting to happen.

Re: Gimmick Or God Send?


Well, it's expensive, and dangerous, but to be honest, there are occasions I'd use it.......I don't think it'd be the go to saw, but when it has to be done and this saw it the only candidate........I'd love to have one, just in case.......

Yes, like that. The one I was picturing looked a little more like a skil saw, but it is the same brand. Maybe they changed the design in the last 30 years. Or, maybe I don't remember it right.

That looks so much safer. A solid left grip, too.

It is a nice saw to use even if you hit a nail and it shoots the saw out you can dodge it.

What would be a huge seller I think is a offset reciprocating saw. Its easier to hold the kickback on a reciprocating saw better than a circular saw.

Offset so it can lay flat of the deck and still flush cut with out tipping the saw.

A recip saw + long (flexible) blade is basically a flush cutter, no?

Sorta but you never get it totally straight the first cut. I have gotten it a couple times. Then some times have to come back and redo it so you have to redo it.

Id even buy it if it was dewalt and I dislike dewalt tools.

Re: Gimmick Or God Send?


I have a Crain 820 undercut saw. We use it to cut jambs for flooring, and to cut out the door plates on framed walls. One time we cut the bottom of the base off in an entire room so that we could tuck 3/4" flooring under the base instead of removing and replacing the base. It'd not a tool we use every day, but there really is no substitute for it. You could do these things with a hand undercut saw, but it wouldn't be much fun.

If I had your money I'd burn it.

It would be good for getting up close on the end of an inside corner or end into a wall. I could see a lot of uses for it but DAMN it's heavy, make one of your young guys use it.

The blade wouldn't even spin, I think inside the ts55 there is a small hamster on a wheel.
