I have only used the saw blade so far and encountered a very possible hazardous flaw: the Allen head bolt that holds the tool blades comes loose, no matter how much it is tightened. I had to call Rockwell tech support and they sent what looked like a similar bolt but it must be just slightly different in diameter because the bolt held a little bit better, but it still loosened with the vibrations. Oh, yes, the agent seemed very familiar with this problem and immediately said a replacement bolt would fix the problem. It seems this is a known defect. There is really no safety catch to prevent the saw blade from possibly causing injury because it swivels loose and spins to the side. Also the saw blade wasn't very sharp or I was wary of putting too much pressure on it as the bolt still loosened.
Recommend this product?
Also, the manual had very little in the way of instructions or diagrams for a clear explanation of installing the various blades and polishers, and there are no indications on the variable speed wheel - totally a trial and error thing. The tool gets hot very quickly, even doing very light work.
I wanted a multifunction tool to do small fix up jobs in the home, but I am not too sure this tool is worth the money.
