That 20v saw is amazing. It's the smoothest cutting saw on the market. Milwaukee and makita have more power, but the 20v is no slouch, and it's smoother and more comfortable to use.

I actually bought one of those to see if it would work for my purpose. I might be able to make it work with a fair bit of work. I was hoping to find something easier to work with.

It depends on the clutch drive- some tek guns spin at 1700 rpm's for high torque applications.

And I want to mount a clutch drive on my fein 4 speed drill that will spin at up to 3850 rpms.

30" is a little loose, but I can make it work with a belt. The trouble is that most companies only make a 30" waist with up to a 32" inseam, and I generally need a 34" inseam.
