Last night I was able to try out one of the prototypes of the New
Concept Saw by Bonny Doon, which has been mentioned here before, and
I had a blast. I am a metalworker hobbyist, and the ease of use was
incredible while the time it took to get used to it was very short.
I did break two 4/0 saw blades initially but that was part of the
short learning curve. In a brief time I was able to cut out of 18
gauge brass extremely tiny complex patterns including 90 degree and
greater turns, reverses, small circles, and thin fingers very
easily. These patterns cut out so neatly and cleanly that they could
easily be put back in place in the brass, much like a puzzle part.
Since the foot petal was a Lucas which is the same type I use on my
Flexshaft, it was very easy to adjust the speed while you worked.
This gal with carpal tunnel syndrome was a very happy camper. I
sure do like tools that function efficiently.
