All the cordless lately in tool releases sometimes overshadows some really cool innovations in corded tools and robs them of proper mention in tool news — like, for example, the Bladerunner circular saw with the Revolver system from Worx
Worx released the Revolver line of swivel grip tools in 2005; The most recent release in the line is their recip saw, which we reviewed quite positively a while back. The Bladerunner bares the same 60 degree handle rotation that graces the recip, so we imagine it’d be quite useful as well.
The concept is pretty simple: take a hard-working 15 amp, 7.25 inch circular saw and marry it to a swiveling handle. The saw already provides a good power plant and the grip allows the user to make steady accurate cuts from a comfortable position with a greater range of motion.
It’s a great idea brought to an already essential shop fixture. Hopefully we’ll get the chance for a hands-on with one of these soon.
