....Why am I posting this here? Because I figured this could be useful to help y'all get the customization job done.
This is a pretty handy little tool for small craft projects.
I wouldn't recommend using this to cut through shotgun shells.
And if you read the Customer Reviews for this item you'll see most of the reviews are good except for the idiot
who tried to cut his shotgun shell with this tool. He's a Dumbass, to say the least. lol
I like the one customer review who advised to apply Lock-Tite to the set screw of the pulley mechanism,
and he included a pic:
""The pulleys on the motor and the axle which drives the blade are secured by a hex screw.
Ater about 5 mins of operation, the hex screw securing the pulley for the blade worked its way out
and started making a growl whick destroyed the belt connecting the motor to the blade.
I haven't been able to secure a replacement belt yet.
You can inspect the belt/pulleys by sliding the platic housing on the left side of the unit up.
Recommend you Lock-Tite the set screw for both pulleys which are located under the belt in the toothed surface.
No belt, no workee!!(ancient proverb) pun intended.
Outside of this annoyance it appears to be a decent unit.
Had I the wisdom to prevent this situation, it would be very happy with it.""
I actually have this saw. Mine is a different color but exactly the same. The blade isn't the greatest and it is not super high RPM but for small pieces of wood, thin metal etc. it gets the job done.
Some things are too thick (i.e. Tall) to cut with it so they would have to be cut, rotated 180 degrees and then cut from the opposite side. Some stuff you will not fly through, you have to cut a little more slowly. Overall though it cuts clean and accurate and for a hobby bench it was worth the $. Also harbor freight always has a 20% off coupon or a crazy sale so you will never pay retail for this.
