This summer is the perfect time to own the new Rockwell BladeRunner® X2 that uses assorted, T-shank, jigsaw blades to cut wood, PVC, plastic, aluminum and other non-ferrous metals, as well as ceramic tile. This lightweight, portable benchtop saw does the work of multiple saws by making fast and accurate rip, cross, scroll, inside and miter cuts.
Unlike conventional saws, BladeRunner X2 handles a variety of projects by simply changing blades. It’s also affordable, compact and weighs less than 15 lbs. The saw measures only 6¾ inches high, which is a comfortable work height when mounted to a workbench. The saw’s tabletop measures 17 inches wide by 15¾ inches deep.
“The BladeRunner X2 is ideal for home workshops, or it easily can be carried right to the project’s location,” said Sharon Blackwell, Rockwell Product Manager. “It uses standard, 4 inch jigsaw blades, which are readily available at home centers and hardware stores. Changing blades is easy, and the saw sets up in seconds to cut a variety of materials for DIY projects.”
The BladeRunner X2 makes all the right cuts to build a bird feeder, trellis, potting table, garage shelving, garden bench or Adirondack chair. Scroll decorative rails, panels and corner braces for gazebos, pergolas or privacy fences. Quickly cut PVC to design a towel rack, bike stand, fishing rod holder or other storage holder. Create metal lawn ornaments or ceramic-tile tabletops, trivets and coasters for summer deck parties.
Changing blades is simple. Just press down and slide the blade release lever on the left side of the saw to seat or release the blade. Once the blade is in position, guide rollers ensure accurate 90 degree cutting at all times.
The BladeRunner X2’s hold-down arm adjusts to match the thickness of the work piece, and incorporates a splitter to help keep straight cuts on track. It holds the work piece against the table to minimize vibration and flips out of the way for making interior cuts.
The BladeRunner X2 fence has two adjustment knobs to align work pieces for straight and accurate rip cutting. Fence channels at both the front and rear of the tabletop have measurement scales for precise alignment. A miter gauge also is provided for making angle cuts.
The versatile benchtop saw is powered by a 5.5-amp motor that delivers 3,000 strokes per minute. Its cutting capacity is 1½ inch in wood; 1¼ inch in PVC; 3/8 inch in aluminum and ceramic tile, and 1/8 inch in mild steel. The blade stroke is 3/4 inch.
The durable base is impact resistant and supported by four, non-marring rubber feet. Built-in storage is provided for the fence and miter gauge.
Other features include an on/off paddle switch with safety key to prevent unauthorized use, 6-foot power cord and built-in carrying handle. The BladeRunner X2 is covered by the Rockwell 3-year warranty.
