Glad you posted that - I was wondering if I should just throw mine away and suck up the $10.79(9.99+8% Albany Co. & NYS tax) Now, at least, another chance at 'life' for it.

As far as cutting steel - it stalls in anything heavier then tin can thickness

IF you cut the front of the blade at an angle they work well for removing seam sealer/undercoat, think VW rear body panels. Cleaner, faster, cheaper than wire brush or Rolocs.

hacksaw blades are a good idea. this saw shines in fiberglass work, I also used it to cut fender vent holes in a honda civic fine, but you try cutting through any thicker metal and it bogs out.

My saw has a little straight blade brass screw down near the air inlet, you can use it to adjust the saw speed. If that doesn't work you can put one of these in your air line and reduce the air pressure to the tool.
