The circular saw is a disappointment. It has cutting power
but the shoe is wiggly.

If you need a precise circular saw, choose a different format.

Otherwise the P-C tools I tested are good quality with
powerful, high-torque motors and relatively basic features.

I wonder if the batteries interchange with the DeWalt ones…. they sure look the same.

They don’t, apparently, from what I’ve read.

This set is $300 right now at lowes. I did notice the flex you mentioned on the circ saw. But at $300 night still be worth it for what yo get?

yeah. It’s pretty nice. The saw is strong, just a little
too wiggly for exacting cuts.

The format on the oscillating tool is a little less
common than the popular one.

The reciprocating saw is pretty basic. The motors
are all real torquey.

Have your say...
