I'm sure the rest of you like me have seen the twin saw with the counterrotating blades and thought it can't be as good as it looks in the ad. I'm telling you it is and better. We had a job at work where there was a steel rail in the floor that was going to cause interference with a new installation. We needed to remove 8 - 10 mm deep by about 4" by 4" wide and it was in a tight place. We're always looking for ways to do things without sparks because of the fire hazard in the plant. We tried and used the Harbor Freight version of the twin saw and it's pretty impressive. A little of the rail had already been slightly clearanced years ago with a torch so to us this was a worst case situation. We ran this thing about 30 minutes continuous and it did get hot but it worked flawlessly. All it takes is the weight of the tool to make it cut - you don't have to fight it or push like you would a grinder and VERY few sparks at all - mainly just when we were on the previously torched section. After all this it still cuts great. I think it was either $49 or $59 on sale and I've got to have one of these. I know all of you have gotten the crappy Bob Vila tools for Christmas but this thing works just like it should. Clay


I have done so much with so little for so long, I can now do anything with nothing.

Thanks for the endorsement.

I had thought of buying one from Sears that they sell under the Craftsman name (doesn't do any good to label it a Craftsman as they don't give you a new one when it burns up). It is probably the same Chinese import that Harbor Freight sells only for twice the price.

I just got the harbor freight model for Christmas. I hadn't heard of these saws until this thread. Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I will check in after I do.
