The saw is truly a pain to use. I used a dremel with a HD cutoff wheel. mostly because I already had it.

I'm on my second Xuron cutter, only because I was using the 1st one to cut small wire instead of rail. I paid $4.00 for my 1st. one & this last price was $9.00 at a train show. Remember to cut the H.O. scale rail from top to bottom like the directions say. LOL

Use only on track

I took a pass at some copper wire and noticed that it not only didn't cut the wire but it left a nick in the Xuron cutters so stick with cutting rail with them.
