      I have tool for years and it is indispensable when it comes to doing flooring. I use it for cutting jambs, doorstops, door casing or any other obsticle in your way that only can only be cut with a hand saw. Multi tools are ok but this saw gets the job done quicker with more precision

      I like the idea of this saw but it does not work well for me. I have used it several times and each time the blade came off and I had to reinstall it. I am putting it on correctly, but it does not seem able to stay in place during use. If not for this major design flaw it would be a very good tool. It barely runs before the blade comes off, that is why I regret buying this tool and wish that I had taken it back to the store. It is a waste of money

      A fine trim cutting saw

      By mabloodhound

      from Halifax, MA

      Comments about Bosch Tools Finecut Power Handsaw:

      Had this saw almost 10 years and it is the go to tool for all my jamb and casing trim work when installing floors and cabinets. I also use it when installing new windows or exterior casings to trim back shingles or clapboards to fit a larger size opening.

      Easy to use

      By LarryN

      from Mansfield, TX

      Comments about Bosch Tools Finecut Power Handsaw:

      This saw has become very useful in several remodeling projects. You can easily do flush cuts in small spaces that you would be unable to reach with an ordinary hacksaw. It is also much more precise than a hack saw.

      I'm sure glad a fellow tile installer showed me this tool. Cutting door jams is a breeze! and saves a lot of time. Buy this tool! You won't be disappointed.

      Trying to find replacement blades is difficult. Not great at trimming work. better off buying a Miter Saw.

              "Step aside hand saws"

              from fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

              Pros

              • Durable

              Cons

              • cuts a little slow

                Comments about Bosch Tools Finecut Power Handsaw:

                This saw is well suited for under cutting door jams and making intricate cuts in laminate flooring. An excellent value. I hope future saws will have a longer stroke and come with a carbide blade.
