BladeRunner X2 Portable Tabletop Saw is rated out of 5 by 389.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GuitarMan from A light weight workhorse The BladeRunner X2 is such an important and unique tool to me that after buying and using one for four full days of work, I purchased a second one as a backup. For me the ability to have a table top saw that can cut so many different materials which is less than 15 lbs making it so easy to transport is a game changer. I no longer need to transport a 45 lb plus jobsite table saw around. Although it is light in weight, it has been a true workhorse for me. I have used it regularly for almost a year and a half for big and small jobs. From rebuilding two sheds, to making a slop sink surround, ripping plywood, cutting trim boards, PT lumber, ceramic tile, and wood flooring, etc, this light weight wonder has never let me down. While I own two of them, other than as an extra saw for my workshop at home, the first BladeRunner X2 has done the bulk of the work and is still going strong. I depend on my BladeRunner X2 so much that I do not know how I would accomplish my work so efficiently without one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RadBean from Great Craft Saw I bought this saw to make a custom frame to attach a matte to that will fit inside a shadow box. I needed wood strip that were 3/4" wide, but the smallest wide I could find were 1" thick. I purchased this saw to rip through the five-layer laminated basswood strips so they would be 3/4" wide and to cut those strip to the right lengths. The saw didn't rip through the wood with the speed of a table saw, more at the speed of a jig saw, which it basically is. The saw handled the job beautifully, giving me straight cuts. Great craft saw for making picture frames and shadow boxes. The only thing that would make this saw even more versatile would be the capability to angle the blade to get beveled cuts so I could make roofs for birdhouses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by harpolemond from Lightweight and portable Just purchased. Some trouble with set up and manual was only marginal for help. Once the Arm was set up and understood how it worked all was well. I had only little trouble installing blade. I suspect someone wrote the manual who is very familiar with the saw. Get someone who is not familiar with it to help you re write it. Otherwise the saw is great. Cuts anything you can throw at it within reason including metal and plastic pipes including aluminum with the right blades. Nice saw and I do recommend it highly

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChuckSr from Good saw with excellent capabilities I bought this saw a week ago, thinking this would be a great option in place of several larger, more cumbersome and space-consuming (as well as much more expensive) power saws. The setup manual was a bit sparse on instructions, mostly pictures like those from IKEA. I had no problems until I got to the blade installation. Following the instructions, I inserted the blade as far as possible, pulled the switch to the left, and lowered the arm. Each attempt to operate the saw resulted in the blade popping out. I assumed it to be a problem with the alignment of the bearings inside of the Guard for the blade, so I have spent the past week attempting to re-align and lubricate those bearings. This morning, I finally came to this site and found this in the FAQ section: "I just installed a new blade, but it’s not sitting straight. How do I fix it?" The answer below solved my problem: "If the blade isn’t fully seated during installation, there is a potential that it can turn in the mechanism as the blade release button is disengaged. Fixing this is easy. Follow the instructions for removing the blade. With the blade release button still engaged, re-seat the blade and make sure it is completely inserted into the mechanism. Hold the blade firmly in place while slowly releasing the blade release button. Once the button is completely disengaged, release the blade and remove the blade holder." Now, looking back at the drawings, I see that this sequence is actually shown in the drawings, but from my experience, it is easily overlooked. (It doesn't help that I have one hand in a cast!) Perhaps in addition to the sequence shown in the drawing, the paragraph from the FAQ shown above could be added to the Troubleshooting chart following the paragraph on MAINTENANCE replacing the current Possible Solution for "Blade is not clamped tightly by the Blade Holder."

Rated 5 out of 5 by SUNDOWN CUSTOM GUITARS from the most versatile saw i have ever owned as a professional luthier with a high demand for custom built guitars this saw is great.. with 2 table saws and a bandsaw I keep finding myself going to this saw first. the rips are outstanding and very accurate.. cutting out guitar bodies and headstocks are a real breeze.. my jigsaws are put away now that I have this saw. Rockwell outdid themselves with this one.. high quality, versatile, easy to use, and takes on any cut I need to make and it has cut my production time down by 35%.. I don't know how I ever got along without this saw. I just cant say enough on how great this is.. I LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riko from Really great for those in between jobs When the job is too big for a hobby jig saw and too small for a full size table saw. The blade selection is good, but what should you use for 1/8 inch plastic?

Does this unit come with anything used to attach it to a wall??
Can BladeRunner cut travertine? If so, what blade should I use? I did not see an answer to the question about cutting glass. If so, what blade would you use?
How can I get a replacement yellow safety key for the ROCKWELL-BladeRunnerX2-4-in-Carbon-5-5-Amp-Table-Saw?
I'm having the same issue, and from what I've ready, this part should fit the Rockwell Bladerunner: Ridgid TS2400LS 10" Table Saw Replacement Switch Key # 826122. It's about $6 on Amazon.

Is there any SAFE way I can use this product with a 220volt power source??? I will love to buy one asap, if possible.
Will this saw have the capability and power to rip 1/2 inch oak
the key to good cuts on this saw it the right blade slection ,and I also found out the the slower you go (making the cut)the better it will be even with the rip fence in place GO slow feeding the work.

Where can I buy the Vacuum adapter for my bladerunner x2 ?
I just asked the same question about purchasing a Vacuum Adapter for my BladeRunner. I couldn't find one on RockwellTools.com. I'm going to do a websearch for a 1 1/4" to 2" adapter/reducer for my shopvac. Google should find something suitable.
