perhaps it's not a tool you would use often but it gives me a great feeling that when I go to install my backsplash I have the tool I need, don't have to rent or borrow and, my sons can rent it from MOM.

This is a replacement tool for one I had for years. Tons of Bts and easy to change out. Have not had to use it yet but it looks like it will handle my next small project.

Tried it ass soon as it arrived. Perfect tile cut, like a pro! Now I can use this to finish all my bathroom tiling jobs. Compared to a 4 inch saw sold at a well known DIY superstore for 125 dollars, this is definitely cheaper. Thank you Overstock!

This tool is perfect for a beginner like me . I already carved some wood pieces and they do not look bad at all. I have been trying to burn it, unsuccessfully.

Easy set up; good clear instructions. I am able to sharpen 3 blades in less time than I could do one before with much greater accuracy.

I run a small engine repair shop and I work on a lot of chainsaws. I needed to be able to sharpen the chains. Well, the lowest cost quality sharpener I can find is a $200.00 Oregon. I can't afford that right now but I had to have something NOW. So I had no choice but to take a chance on the absolute cheapest sharpener I could find. So I bought the Buffalo Tools sharpener. You can't imagine how shocked I was when I realized it actually works! I've sharpened several chains with it and it works GREAT! First off, DON'T BE AN IDIOT. It's PLASTIC, the threaded parts are PLASTIC, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN ANYTHING THAT IS PLASTIC!!! Have I stressed that enough? Most of the bad reviews I've seen are from people that over tighten everything and break or strip out the plastic. Take it easy with this thing and you'll be fine. One thing I noticed is the clear plastic guard you have to look through is thick and distorts what you're looking at. Take it off and throw it away. You also have to turn the motor off between each cut. This is no big deal because where you drape your hand over the top of the unit to pull it down your fingers rest right on the on/off buttons and they click on and off very easily. After one chain you'll be doing this automatically. For under $40.00 I couldn't be happier. Some day I'll get me a good Oregon sharpener but until then this will do just fine.

Own this electric sander for about a year. Used it maybe 3 times before it started faultering. Today it died completely. Think twice before buying Buffalo Tools or items thru Overstock.

I returned the item and I'm waiting for my funds to be added back to my account. I was very disappointed that the torch was not as represented and arrived in a previously opened and stapled shut package. I read that overstock deducts from your refund if the item is opened and or looks used. I made certain when I initiated my return that I wrote that the item was obviously previously opened, had been used ( the tip was brown ) and that it was not as represented. I am insisting on a full refund. Everything else I've ever purchased from Overstock has been great. I will not let this one experience sway me from shopping here. I'm certain their award winning Customer Service Team will do the right thing. Then I can go buy the torch I wanted.

Bought this item on 2/14/2012 and did not get to use until 03/28/2012. Within 15 minutes of use, it became very very hot to the point where the red color was starting to peel off. then it started to break to different pieces. I think this is a case of you get what you pay for....I would not recommend it nor would i buy one...in fact..i would have returned it if i could.

This is a handy little tool that I have already used for a couple small jobs around the house. Just be aware it is not super powerful so will not work well where you have a lot of resistance, for example if there is not already a drill hole.. Nice for basic stuff like furniture assembly where there are 87 screws to put in!

WOW !!!! What a bargin for the price. The flexable shaft alone cost that !!! A quality rotary tool !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a good tool for hobbyists, or for some small intricate cuts and shapes which I occasionally need to make.

It is still sitting in my tool kit. Did not have the cause to use it yet, but I am sure it will do the job. Do not have much comments to tell about it.

I bought this for my fiance for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. He couldn't wait to tear it out of the box and use it. He said it is the perfect tool because it does everything. Great product!

A wet saw is a useful power tool for anyone who will be cutting tile. Wet saws achieve a clean cut without breaking the tile by using a diamond-encrusted blade that rotates the saw through a pan of water as it cuts. The water keeps the saw blade cool, which prevents tile breakage and helps protect the saw's motor. Some wet saws are also capable of cutting through dense metals and brick. For a single weekend project, renting a power tool such as a wet saw may be more economical than purchasing one, but if you'll be cutting tile more than a time or two, owning one of these handy power tools is worth the investment.
