What is the Rockwell VersaCut 4.0 Amp Compact Circular Saw?
The VersaCut is a plunge cutting mini circular saw with a slim, ergonomic design for easy, one-handed operation. It is multi-functional tool that can cut many different materials such as wood, flooring, plastic, ceramic tiles, slate, aluminum and even sheet metal. Just pick the appropriate blade for the job at hand!
How is the VersaCut 4.0 Amp Compact Circular Saw different than a typical circular saw?
Typical circular saws are big, bulky, require both hands to operate and are limited to straight cuts at a set depth. The Rockwell VersaCut 4.0 Amp Compact Circular Saw is 1/3 the weight of typical saws and is designed for one-handed use. VersaCut can plunge cut into material, making it a versatile addition to your toolbox.
Is the Rockwell VersaCut battery operated or electric?
The VersaCut is a 4 Amp electric tool and has a 10-foot cord to give you the reach you need to skip the extension cord.
How heavy is the Rockwell VersaCut?
The VersaCut Compact Circular Saw only weighs 4lbs which makes it extremely easy to maneuver with one hand, freeing up your other hand for the work. At 1/3 of the weight of a typical circular saw, the VersaCut is the ideal saw for long jobs, tight or out of the way workspaces, or for a wider variety of projects.

How does the VersaCut’s quick cutting depth adjustment work?
The quick cutting depth adjustment is designed to be easy to use so you can spend time doing the work that matters. To change the depth adjustment, release the black locking lever, move the indicator to the desired depth and flip the lever to lock it back in place. Quick and easy.
How do I get the blade off?
Use the included hex key to remove or change the blade. Insert it into the blade spindle clamping screw and turn right to loosen and remove the bolt, washer and blade. Replace the blade, put on the washer, then the bolt and turn left to tighten the blade in place. There’s even a place to keep your hex key right on the cord of the VersaCut so you’ll always have it on hand when you need it.
What if I misplace the key for changing the VersaCut’s blades? What size is it?
The hex key included with the VersaCut has two sizes, both 4mm and 5mm. The 5mm end is for changing the blades, and the 4mm end is for tightening the parallel edge guide into the fitting at the front of the cutting base.
Does the laser guide only work when the VersaCut is turned on?
Like the old saying goes, measure twice, cut once. Precision matters, so the Rockwell VersaCut has been designed so you can have the laser guide on even when the tool is not. You can line up and plan your cut to save time and materials.
What size battery do I need for the VersaCut’s laser light?
The VersaCut uses one of the most common size batteries, the LR44, which can be found just about anywhere batteries are sold. The laser light requires 2.
