Bottom Line: Very good fret saw offers an extremely high degree of control which saves time when it comes to fine woodworking tasks. Comes up short when it comes to material selection for the handle. Otherwise generally positive but not a necessity in the workshop given the price.
-Lightweight and extremely maneuverable.
-Tightening the saw blade very easy thanks to a micro-adjuster and cam locking mechanism.
-Saw blade can be swiveled to a preset +45 degrees, 0 degrees, and -45 degrees allowing the operator to get into tight corners.
-A premium fretsaw should have a premium handle.
-Workmanship on my saw was somewhat lacking. A part fell off after a few uses.
-The 8” saw will flex when the blade is under high tension.
