    I badly need one thanks. That's what I thought about the circular saw I bought 3 years ago and never actually used too

    I had one a few years old now. It worked fine for large, quick cuts. But anything that needed precision of angle such as skirting would be a problematic. Maybe this is a newer model though.

    •  

      Yeah, this is the newer model, can't comment on quality.

        Ok good enough for me to burn $50. I remember reading deals in the past that you can't rely on this cutting accurately at all. Hopefully new model is better.

        (The 18v cordless circular saw in the ozito range is freakin hopeless. Every other tool in the range that I own has been good.)

    Great price on this saw.

    I wish the sliding compound saw would go on sale!

    • +2 votes

      It did! briefly, a month or so ago for a single day, $144 for the 254mm

      Bunnings must have through that Aldi were going to have one on sale. They did not.

      I went in to get it the next day and it was back to normal price :(

    what would be better between this one and the aldi one?

  •  

    Any sign yet that Bummings will knock down the Ryobi bandsaw and/or planer thicknesser to compete. They dropped the bandsaw price before Aldi made it to WA, so no local bargains.

  •  

    That is so cheap. Even if it gets used once a year.

    I have this, it's great but before you buy it really think about if it will be big enough for your needs. It doesn't cut through 90x90mm posts so you have to cut them one side then turn them over and cut again, I wish I bought the bigger version.

    •  

      Good enough to do skirting boards?

    •  

      Maybe a bit specific but what about golf shafts? Steel ~10mm?
      Accurate enough?
      Thinking of making my own golf workshop.

        The only metal I have cut is fly screen frames and it didn't have any issues, definitely want to be wearing safety glasses though.

        •  

          Definitely with the goggles. Hmm I might have to try with an old shaft and if it struggles a bit have to refund and think of something with more power.

          @KBZ: they wont cut steel. they are made for wood. even aluminium is pushing it.

    Nice price but please be aware that this does not make perfect mitre cuts (i have one). If you are looking to do precise woodwork then dont get this. Otherwise works very well.

      I know what you mean.

      I got a GMC (remember them?) and have the same issue. Good for chopping up bits of wood. No good for anything that needs finesse.

    •  

      Should we still drill unit to table?

  •  

    Bought the bigger brother sliding compound saw a few months back. Went straight back to bunnings, it was garbage and wouldn’t cut straight. Do not recommend.

  •  

    To confirm, there is an issue with this mitre saw's cutting quality - given it is a fraction the cost of one from a reputable brand?

    1. Not powerful enough to cut cleanly
    2. Cannot use another style blade to improve the quality of cut?
    3. Hinge is not smooth and is loose
  •  

    Got one few months go. Mitre cuts are off.

      I'm pretty sure with all mitre saws you need to square it first.

      With all the transport from China to shop floor it gets knocked around quite a bit

      • +2 votes

        This is true. Even quality saw can be out of square from transit. Cheaper ones may be harder to square up and need constant fiddling with to keep it cutting true. You get what you pay for though, and this is a good price for general diy framing or basic use.
        Skirting boards would be a pita but not impossible

      •  

        The issue with saws like this is the lateral movement in the shaft. You can spend all day tuning the saw, but if the blade wobbles because of cheap bearings it will never be true.

        I have had a couple of cheapies like this and as other people say, if you just want to cut a piece of wood down to a rough size it is fine. I still have an old Black and Decker circular saw that has sleeve bearings and I think the blade moves sideways by more than a millimeter.

        If you need it to be accurate to better than half a millimeter (eg picture frames, trim work, boxes) this is not the saw for you.

    Anyone tried to cut hardwood sleepers by this model? I am looking for a saw to do some remaining wall job.

    I bought it a year ago with full price, used for my building my backyard timber deck, did a perfect job.

    • +1 vote

      I've had one of these for many years, it's done a merbau deck and 3 rooms of bamboo floating flooring.

  • +1 vote

    Hmmm… I've always "wanted" one but do I really "need" one???!!!

  •  

    I bought it for the normal price a while back to build some basic floor and table lamps (rip-off at the shops for pretty simple designs) and yeah it has trouble cutting straight, though still worked well enough for those projects. Definitely hopeless when precision is needed though when I tried to build a simple box with 45 degree mitres.

    But for $50 it's a no brainer if you ever want a simple cutting tool. I've used mine to cut screen-door cartridges to size for instance. I would've preferred the sliding version in the end, but the problem is at the time I couldn't justify the extra cost not knowing I'd use it again after that

    Just bought one from Artarmon, there’s a couple of them left

  •  

    Argh Bunnings is closed tomorrow!

    But this looks like a great deal, assuming it can be calibrated… I’d need a saw stand for it (no work bench), which would cost $11 more than the saw itself!

    Pity the 254mm sliding saw isn’t on sale, that looks a lot more flexible…

  •  

    Plenty in stock at Rydalmere (NSW)

    Great value for $48

    I’m waiting and will get a bigger sliding saw though…
