Northern Industrial Tools Air Body Saw - 4 CFM, 90 PSI, 10,000 Strokes/Min.
It woirked for less than a minute
Either I bought a bad one or it's just cheap junk......I ordered through the mail (can't drive due to Cancer)
I had a specific job in mind when I purchased it ...I put the air connector on added a couple drops of air tool oil ,went to cutting on a piece of plastic .It just stopped I put in the box and then to my tool box and forgot about till I just now saw it advertised for sale again...It's certainly been a year , I forgot I had it to send back.....In my opinion save your money this tool disappointed me big time.........

Very handy. NO SPARKS is totally worth it.
Very handy tool. Use this to cut through my Jeep's rusty floor board in no time. My buddy used it on his 56 caddy. Happy I bought this.

I tend to be skeptical of house brand tools, but this saw seems to be good quality. I recieved it as a gift and have been using it to cut body panels on a car I am restoring. I have not used other air body saws, but compared to a standard name brand electric sawzall it is balanced much better and therefore easier to control and cut straight with.

not total junk
This saw does do what it you think it does, but that includes what you think it should do for how cheap it is. Mine frequently you have to "jump start" it, by kinda hand getting it going or it doesn't start reciprocating. But not everytime. Otherwise it seems ok, just definintely a cheapie

Incredible Time Saver
This a GREAT little saw. If you're using a die grinder and cutoff wheel to trim light gauge metal like I was, this will be the best purchase you've ever made. Make sure you buy some extra blades!

Air Body Saw
Saw does what is expected of it. Nice for hard to reach places. Saw if worth the price paid. Nice to have around for those hard to reach places when in a bind.

Great saw so far.
Have not had the saw long, but it has worked great so far. Able to cut patch panels with tight radius corners. Cuts faster than using a abrasive cutoff wheel.

Very well pleased over all.
After reading some of the other reviews I started to buy a different, more expensive saw but I'm glad I saved my money and bought this one instead. I know there can be a bad apple now and then, it's happened to me too, but I've been well pleased with this saw. I have had it bind on me and blow air a few times, but that is not the saw's fault necessarily. It's mostly because I had a bad angle on the blade in a tight spot where I had to work in close quarters. It quits cutting and just blows air when the blade binds , which is not really a bad thing in my mind as far as safety goes, not to mention it keeps me from making a bad cut even worse. I simply take my finger off the trigger and pull out or adjust my angle and it picks back up just fine. Adjusting the blade guide/guard to the appropriate depth helps to keep that from happening to frequently and it will keep you from bending a blade too badly. Remember to oil it before every use like you would any other air tool and always drill a guide hole if you're starting your cut anywhere but on the edge of your material. It will make turns, but not very sharp ones, this is not a scroll saw after all. I run mine at 90 psi, as recommended, and it does a good job for me every time.

A must in every garage
This is tool that everybody should have. I not only use it for metal but I also use it for plastic, cardboard, etc.. I haven't had a problem with it so far and I think as long as I keep it oiled it will last a long time. It feels solid not cheap and comes with extra blades.
