Default New Skill Saw

Just saw (pun unavoidable) this somewhere.
Skil - Skil Flooring Saw, model 3600 Product Demo


It's aimed at flooring installation but it looks like it could be a nice option for people wanting to get into box making and have limited space and budget.
If they made a version with a larger depth of cut and the ability to tilt the blade, it could be quite useful.

That's pretty cool!

Here's a link to some more specs:
Skil 3600-02 120V Flooring Saw Kit
The way it sits, it looks to like pretty much a one-trick pony but, like gav says, could have possibilities.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

That's not going to sell well, first of all it's got saftey devices built in.

Most of the flooring guys Ive seen use a carpentar saw with all the guards/fence etc removed and the blade all the way up and free hand the cut.
