"The job was to cut one hole in a ceiling for an extra downlighter, and at the price I can't complain. The point could be sharper, nothing a grinder couldn't fix, but it was sharp enough to start the hole without much effort. The teeth are sharp enough to cut a neat, circular hole. Though the handle looks as if it's made of the cheapest possible plastic, it lasted this job and I expect it will do a few more before it's finished.
Yes, it fits neatly into my toolbox ready for the next job."
"Used this for building a partition wall at home. The only slightly negative point is that the handle is hard plastic, rather the the softer rubberised handle of my previous saw. However, it was less than half the price and saws just as well. Can't comment on the longevity yet, but got me through this project with no problems."
"Cheapest drywall saw at the time and perfectly fit for purpose. Not ideal if using for a lot of work or for long periods of time but for the occasional cut out etc., its perfect and worth every penny of it's two pounds"
"Cannot complain at all for the price! Not a case of 'you get what you pay for' at all, has been a good and robust blade with a comfortable handle. I spent most the time wearing gloves and it was easy to use.
I did take a file to the tip to sharpen it up a bit, giving a cleaner job when poking through, but as I have been using it for new plasterboards as much as old style lat and plaster walls it has been very consistent."
"Thought I'd buy a cheaper pad saw this time as I keep losing them. So I decided on just getting a cheapy one. Does the same as the more expensive ones. What else can I say! Not as thick a blade as the dearer make but hey hoe. Your only going to cut plasterboard with it."
"Didn't want to spend a fortune on something so basic as a drywall saw. why would I, it does the job it's designed to do. I don't want to walk around with it to see who's impressed by the designer handle or hand etched and Gold inlaid blade. I just want to cut a hole for a plug or light fitting. Simple and cheap as chips does it for me."
"This is very much a budget tool and ok if you just want to use it a couple of times. My major gripe is that the blade is very course and makes a but of a mess of plasterboard. If you are going to use a saw more often then spend the money"
