BladeRunner X2 Portable Tabletop Saw is rated out of 5 by 386.
Rated 5 out of 5 by gfry from Unbelievable! This is a beautiful machine and it works (worked) really well. I have used this machine 3 times, but just today I went to use it again, (for the 4th time), and I could NOT change out the saw blade I had in it from the last time I used this machine. The red button for disengaging the cutter does NOT work now! I had to use a flat-head screwdriver to manually rotate the collar/collet in a counter clockwise direction to release the existing jig saw blade as well as enable me to install a different one! I have, so far, never cut anything other than wood - and the thickest of them all was only 3/4'. What do I need to do to get this resolved because I love the design of this machine and it fits the bill for a lot of things I need to do that other machines are not as efficient for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jazz251 from Nice little tool I bought this today while at Lowe’s. It was an impulse buy since the tool was on sale and with my military discount it was worth the cost. Used it this afternoon to cut some plastic. Should come in very handy with the odd jobs around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sawdustman from The Bladerunner is a beast. Get one. The Bladerunner is a beast in addition to being the ultimate cutting machine. You are in for a treat but you need to check the motor adjustment so the Bladerunner cuts straight as it should. This is a motor adjustment that you can do with the help of a YouTube video that will show you how this procedure is done. Once you do this then you will be ready to do some test cuts. Then put the Bladerunner to work. I use a square to line up my fence in preparation for a cut then, install the proper type blade for the material I will cut when using the fence. Not all cuts require the use of the fence but use a square if using the fence. The miter gauge is accurate but hold it down while making a cut and go slow and let the blade do the work. Make sure to check the specs for the maximum thickness of material and type of material you will cut. You want to use the right blade for the right material for best results. You do not want to try to rip cut a 2x4 because you will not get an accurate cut at all. I tried this just to see what limitations the Bladerunner had and if could actually do it. Yes, it did rip cut a piece of 2x4 but it was the worse looking cut on planet earth. Don't do that unless you want to make it look like a drunken beaver cut it. Use the recommended thickness of the material and the proper blade for the material you are cutting. Get the crosscut sled accessory. You will need it at some point and it is very useful. You can mount the Bladerunner permanently to a table or use the wall mount. I repurposed an old nightstand for my Bladerunner and it works just fine while using the wire catch on the front of the base to hold your Bladerunner in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoolWithThis from Pretty Cool Jig Saw At first I was upset. Rattled all over the place. Messed with the arm & arm screw and was surprised when I felt the arm fall into place. Really thought I had that arm on properly the first time. Now it has a minor vibration similar to a jig saw. That is what I expected. So now I have a $100 upside down jig saw that can do all sorts of fun things. I also have the slide (it works too). Happy with this thing. Played for an hour. I wouldn't trust the miter or stop without a 2nd measurement. No plastic stamped ruler or cheap miter is gonna be perfectly accurate. But if just needing a really close estimate they are as good as any other in their class. This is exactly what I expected it to be for the price. There are always things to enhance (guess that would be X3) but I give 5 stars because my expectation of the tool is exactly what I got.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Uncle Bobbys Hobbies from Great Saw Have been using this for a few years now. I design and build dollhouses, and this makes cutting small curved pieces a breeze. Small interior cuts are easy without having to remove the blade. Straight square cuts are always made. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mojo7210 from Awesome Since I bought the blade runner it's a delight to have to save time pulling out 4 different machines when your finishing a job, it cuts trims, it cuts tiles, it cuts wood flooring, I even cut a metal pipe all you have to so is change the blade to do what you need, I don't have picture's or a video but believe me I've been doing house remodeling for over 30 years and this machine saves time from going from machine to machine and it's lightweight to carry to different floors if need be, it paid for it self on the very first job I did, awesome little table

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biff from New Additions There is a more powerful motor. The adjustable push guide works well. The guide to the right of the saw is great. The heavy wire addition that stabilizes the saw on the bench, keeping the saw in position is a very wise addition. I like the way that the arm is attached to the saw base; it makes cutting large pieces of material very possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShortCut from Hello Rockwell & public...I'm Travis & I purchased this saw after seeing the commercial...Wow this little saw is the truth!!!...light weight and its like scribing with a pencil...smooth cuts & very reliable...only draw back to me is I wish they add a light near the cutting area & add rubber feet so it want move while cutting. One more thing would be nice is to high light the table scale...more visible to set your fence by....overall I really love this saw. *( pics are my partner Eric in action )*

Rated 5 out of 5 by KamikazeXJ from Awesome product My wife knew I had been wanting the BladeRunner for awhile so she surprised me with one for Christmas and the day after Christmas I made a little table for it so I could clamp it in the Jawstand XP or Jawhorse Sheetmaster that she got for me last Christmas. I just finished my first project with it a bridge for a Ho scale train layout made of 1/4" poplar Square stock and was able to do all the cutting in the house thanks to the shop-vac hookup on the saw. I would definitely recommend the BladeRunner I have cut just about everything with it except tile and I don't have any complaints with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephil from Great Size I just bought the Bladerunnerx2 for Christmas and am very pleased with it. I don’t have a lot of room to do work but this is just the right size and portable. The Bladerunner also works great. I like it so much, I bought every other tool Rockwell makes. Very pleased with Rockwell products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronald1973 from Outstanding Product (tool) Bought it last month. The initial thoughts upon unpacking was that this saw was more like a toy than a tool. How wrong I was. Gave it a tough test; cut a 4"x4"x4" diagonally. The saw blade was not long enough as I planned. The cut was really quite smooth. Flipped the cube over to finish the cut. A perfect cut! I'm talking about my fingers being less than an inch away from the blade. The saw, at no time, buck the cube. I could follow the cube flush with the initial cut. I was pleased. Even though it is super light weight (7-8#) the saw showed no signs of wanting to walk. The first big power saw, I bought some 45 years ago, was a 10" Rockwell table saw which is still used without a single problem. I am reasonably confident that this blade runner will provide me "total satisfaction".

Rated 5 out of 5 by burfmax from wonderful design. This is one of the safest small saws I have ever used. It took a little getting used to, but I was so impressed with this my wife and son bought me a Versacut and Jaw table tool for Christmas. Ironically, I had purchased a Sonicrafter as a gift for that same son! The BladeRunner is a very good saw for the work it is intended for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimmy 44 from Everything you need in a table top saw!! This saw works great. I've used for cutting trim to finish remodeling our family room right on the spot in the room. I also used it for cutting ceramic tile. The accesories that I bought with the saw are a plus too.

When doing a rip cut, why does my board become so difficult to move? I have a new blade, but it seems to be getting caught on the metal piece at the back of the table top?
You may have to adjust the motor position. Check on youtube for a video on how to do this.

1.Do they make a spiral blade for it? 2. How do I get it to stop jumping all over the place?
Thank you for your question. At this time, there is no spiral blade for the BladeRunner. If the blade is wobbling, this is a symptom that the material you’re cutting is thicker than the Bladerunner’s cutting capacity. Make sure you’re not exceeding the cutting capacity for the material you’re cutting by referring to the owner’s manual and ensure the pressure foot is adjusted securely against the surface of the working material. Thank you for choosing Rockwell!

What is the maximum depth for cutting wood?
1 1/16" is the max depth....

Since this saw cuts ceramic tile, will it also cut Glass? We make different crafts using bottles and recycled glass and hope to find something inexpensive for this. I know we need Safety Glasses, but would like to not loose as much glass
