You should have tested rust resistance on the saw blades I've see a huge difference between silky and less expensive models also curved blade and straight back makes a big difference most silky are curved. But always great videos.
I have had for many years the Corona wood handle saw made in the U.S.A. and it is still a great saw , very sharp and cuts like a beast .
Where Laplander, Fiskars and Husqarna?
I own the Bacho cool to see how it stood up. If I seen this before I would buy the corona, or samurai
Thank you! Nice work on the testing jig, as usual. For a video idea, I have personally been researching random orbit polishers (e.g. Milwaikee 2684-20, Dewalt DCM848B, Ryobi PBF100B, Makita XOP02Z or whichever fitting variations). I appreciate your content very much!
Have you seen CAT has a new graphite battery? They have big claims…I think it deserves a test
I was really looking forward to it to the harbor freight special.
Do bandsaws next!
lucky me to have one of those corona ones. random purchase probably based on price. It does do a great job on a variety of tasks I have given it.
Going to buy a 10" Corona razortooth based on your reviews and those on Amazon . Many very happy customers . Only $58 loonies delivered . Thanks Todd .
Corona for the win ! One tool reviewed I already have…yay
So how sore is your arm?
I can appreciate your attempts to change up the results so to not be repetitive, and I had no clue there were that many folders
Thanks, I have a few $20 coronas
Back 15 years ago, when I was doing network retrofit installs, one of these knives would be much better than my Stanley straight-blade drywall saw. I would offer to have you add a few off-purpose tests, but you probably would have to deal with negative input from the tool makers. Oh well, Job Well Done. Thanks
Review recommendation: drywall saws/ stab saws. I always have one for a while and it’s hard to remember the features/ flaws when I’m just trying to pick something up to take to the next job
I actually have two of the Corona saws that my brother and I use when doing yard work for our mother who can't do it on her own any more and it is a very nice saw. I also have one from Fiskars that is also very good. The gripe I have about the Corona saws though is that the nuts securing the hinge screw will back out if you don't put a drop of thread lock on them.
Just wondering.. Have you ever tested a butter knife on that tester? Just for fun.
Can you look at coolant additives please. See if they are snake oil? Water wetter, purple rain etc. They claim a lot of benefits.
What are the other options and what option is better.
My pick for small hand saw is the Wolf Garten Powercut 145. Super sharp and comfortable with great folding mechanism.
This test was just super! This is an excellent example of my lament that "It's 2023, and by now engineering an excellent xxxxxxxx has got to be a solved problem. All brands should work pretty well". Oh, boy, am I naively optimistic.
Could you test Hand files to see if the cheap one are better for the price????
Can you do bug sprays available to the public
Could we revisit PPE? Perhaps hearing protection? Electronic ear muffs vs standard ones?
Kind of upset that the fiskars folding saw was not in this.
