Product Description

14" Abrasive Chop Saw with Laser Trac Delivers Faster Cutting With More Precision

    Craftsman 14" abrasive chop saw with Laser Trac is equipped with a quick release vice, allowing you to make repetitive cuts during fabrication and demolition without wasting time.

    15 Amp 3,300 RPM motor delivers fast cutting, while a hardened gear assembly transfers power efficiently, getting you through metal, plastic, steel studs and much more.

    Swiveling vise adapts to various angles and shapes quickly, locking work pieces down tight and cutting at miters up to 45 degrees. Equipped with an integrated laser, this saw makes precision cuts and piece fabrications quick and easy.

    Cast iron base not only increases stability and wear resistance, but delivers a solid support for the extension bracket and stop block, tools that allow you to easily work on larger pieces.

    14" Abrasive chop saw with laser tracincludes: Two AAA batteries for the laser and a blade wrench for secure blade mounting.

The Craftsman 14" Abrasive Chop Saw with Laser Trac good.

The Craftsman 14" Abrasive Chop Saw with Laser TracŪ (21289) is a good product for the price. That is to say, it is not the most expensive and not a Rolls Royce.

 

The only cons are,

A floppy blade guard. 

Everything else is just fine. Its function is otherwise flawless.

 

One hint though, before trying to align the laser, unbolt it then bolt it right back in place. Otherwise, you may waste a LOT of time trying to get the alignment right. Apparently, the laser is prone to movement, if bumped, during shipment.

 

  • The 15 Amp motor is good enough for hobby use.
  • The vise with its quick release lock is nice, fast and easy.
  • Laser is a good feature. You just need to turn it on. I am going to give it power from A/C when I get around to it. (DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW ELECTRONICS. AND DO NOT TRY WIRING IT INTO a/c CURRENT.)
  • Extension bracket and stop block are nice features.
  • Cast iron base is also good for preventing the saw from taking little trips on its own.

 

If you need a chop saw for hobby use, this is it.

 

Sincerely

Michael

The motor is a little under-powered. Cutting 2 X 4 11 ga mild steel tubing, no matter how fast or slow I made the downward cut, the disc would bow out and not give scquare cuts. The chain to secure the upper assembly was weak and thin. This might be good for some low end conduit or angle iron work, but not for moderate to serious fabricating.

Works well for light cutting

I bought this to cut steel tube and angle iron. 2" x 1/8" square tube is really pushing the motor to the limit. I've had the unit for a couple weeks and it's hanging in there for light hobby work. Construction is of typical Chinese mass produced for lowest possible cost variety. Even though I'm just using it for hobby projects, if I had to buy again I'd spring the extra money for a higher quality model, probably a steel carbide blade version in order to get clean cuts. These abrasive chop saws make sparks like the fourth of July and heat the metal red hot.

Craftsman 14" Chop Saw cuts well.

I've used it several times to cut everything from thin-walled tubing to 3/8" plate steel.  I'm just a hobbyist, not a professional fabricator, but it works well for me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
