      Comments about Finecut Power Handsaw:

      I use this saw to undercut door jambs when installing tile floors. I have also used it to cut out wood underlayment under vinyl flooring that cabinets have been set on. Fits right under the toe kick of cabinets. The light works good but sometimes your hand covers it.

        Comments about Finecut Power Handsaw:

        I bought this for fine woodworking, but it is much heavier and more awkward than I expected. I will find some uses for it, but not everyday like I'd hoped.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Finecut Power Handsaw:

          One of my better purchases for small trim cuts. I'm currently building a dining room hutch and this saw works well for trimming some of my "miss cuts". Not a replacement for a saber saw (can't do curved cuts), but for certain straight cuts is far superior. I have read that it's primary use is for various flooring related trim cuts, but I have not used it for that. But I foresee great usage for general fine, but clear accessible trim cuts in the general woodworking that I do.
