Omni Dual Saw

omni_dual_saw.jpg

We don't watch much TV, so we're not really up to date with the "As Seen on TV" crowd. In fact, until he died, we had no idea who Billy Mays even was. Well, it turns out that the man was capable of selling a refrigerator to an Eskimo and one of the items he was pushing was the Omni Dual Saw. Again, we had never heard of the tool until a few guys on the site started asking if anyone had any experience with that "little saw with the two blades?"

We looked into it and that's pretty much what it is; a little saw with two blades. It looks about the size of the Crocodile Saw, or an angle grinder, or that little trim circ saw that Porter-Cable has. The cool thing here is that the blades rotate in opposite direction which minimizes any kickback. This feature also allows the user to move the saw forward and backwards without any change in the saw's aggressiveness. Apparently, the saw can cut through brick, metal, wood, plastic and whatever else you throw at it.

We also just noticed that Craftsman has a similar item (that's been on the market for a few years) called the Twin Cutter. The Twin Cutter has a larger blade (6-1/8" vs 5") and a more powerful motor (7.8 amps vs 3.4 amps) than the Omni. Even with the extra HP and blade, the Twin Cutter costs less than the Omni, coming in at around $150

Purchased Omni DualSaw for Christmas gift, was told it would arrive in time. Not. Had to pay for shipping and was told that I paid in full would get 2 yrs. for warranty. Hubby used saw 3 times, 3rd time it broke. Was blunty informed by representative that I did not pay for shipping and only had 1 year warranty!! Confirmed by tracking and talking to rep. that they had my old unit. Was told for 6 weeks straight that the unit was in warehouse ready to ship, will note the account, and have someone call me regarding the shipping of my unit, "due to over whelming demand, my unit was delayed" No calls, no unit.
After contacting Better Business Bureau, I have been credited back money for the unit only. Not my shipping. Do not buy, warn others

The first time my husband used his Omni Dual Saw, it literally went up in flames in his hands. I've now had to involve my charge card company and the Better Business Bureau to try to force this company to honor its warranty. I would not recommend this saw (or company) to anyone!
