No offense, but you probably suck at using the tool. I have a Nobex Champion 180 and use it to get flawless, exact cuts all the time.

How on earth did you manage to break “2x handles/one guide/both clamps/support piece”???

You must have been operating it like a Gorilla.

Helpful hint #1: I did buy a few different blades, including an ultrafine (which I have not yet used), and the japanese style blade that cuts much quicker than the standard blade, and still leaves a surface that looks damn near handplaned.

Helpful hint #2: I sunk threaded inserts into my workbench, and screw the saw down before I use it, which totally completely immobilizes it. Boards are very securely clamped with multiple clamps before I saw them.

Helpful hint #3: Learn how to use a handsaw. This is not an insult, there is a lot of technique to it and it takes some practice. Using a miterbox doesn t cancel it out.

You are very much welcome to have a go with mine :D Either you have only used it once or twice or are only cutting some small sticks with it or…mine was a turd from a factory… either way those handles are made out of cheese and you can see almost everyone complaining about that tool because of the terrible handles + there are so many other things where they have just cut corners and tried to save money when making it, so yeah….

I screw it down as well when using it as you can’t use it really any other way.
