Good trim saw
I bought this little saw a few months back as an addition to my growing C3 set, primarily for panel-cutting of plywood sheets into rough dimensions before taking to my table saw for finish cuts. This saw did a great job with the stock, carbide-tipped blade right out of the box, and appeared to tax the battery very little on 5/8 and 3/4 inch thickness plywood. I have also used it to trim the ends off 2x4 studs with no complaints. It does not have the speed or power of a corded saw, but has the advantages of being smaller and lighter, which are helpful when holding the saw during vertical cutting applications. Buyers should keep the intended use of this saw in mind when purchasing - cutting sheet goods, trim cutting, and rough crosscutting of boards, trim, and studs up to 2 inches thick. Precision miter cuts, finish cross-cutting and rip-cutting of boards should be done with other appropriate equipment (miter saws, table saws, etc.) and sustained, repetitive cutting applications might warrant the use of a corded saw (or a few extra batteries.) I have not used this on sustained projects that allowed me to measure battery life - but I have yet to drain the battery after several small projects (plywood and 2x4 trimming.) As with the C3 saber/jig saw I own, I believe the laser is unnecessary, since its brightness obscures the cut-line on a workpiece, and would recommend Craftsman add an LED light instead, for cut-line illumination. I like this saw, and would buy it again.

great saw - has some engineering problems
I have 2 of these - they are great. Don't worry about how long it will last. Some genius at Sears has replaced the blades with the 3/8 arbor hole with one with a 5/8 arbor hole. When the blade that comes with it wears out, you can use it for a paper-weight or just try to figure out why some dumb#@$ decided that you would not need more than the blade that comes with it. I have used this on 3/4 plywood (when I could buy blades). It is hard to believe how well it handles (with a blade). You probably won't need over 1 battery. I can only imagine how unstable it would be with the blade 1/4 inch of center. If blades were available, I would give it 5 stars and probably buy another one for backup. I would have recommended to a friend, however with no blades available, it might come thru my front window.

Another C3 product that is really convenient

I have thought about buying this saw for some time, but had trouble justifying the cost. The recent sale allowed me to make the purchase. It is advertised as a trim saw but it also allows use for 2x framing materials. I understand it will not perform all day, but it makes it very convenient to make a few cuts without dragging out the power cord, especially for a remote cut.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A must have!

Was skeptical of this tool because of it being battery powered but it has surpassed my expectations I trimmed the bottom off a few doors and the cuts were very clean I am impressed, on the 4ah battery it will last a long time before needing a recharge with the nicads the run time is substantially lower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good tool

It's a great little saw but I recommend buying the set or buying a cordless drill with the same battery first because this one doesn't come with one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

helpful hint

For all those complaining about the arbor size and lack of replacment blades. this is actually a 10mm arbor and replacment blades can be found at sears under part number 9 37652 for a fine tooth blade. many other companys make 5 1/2 dia. with the 10 mm arbor also. This is listed as a trim saw. I dont concider a 2x4 as trim, so expecting it to rip thru large pieces of lumber is asking it to do something it is not designed for. Using it for its intended purpose, it is a good saw and has long battery life, IF you have treated you battery's properly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
