Thank you for sharing. I like to browse over to toolguyd but he seems to be antidewalt and sounds like a hard core milwaukee fan (bias).

At any rate, I will buy this tool for sure. I own a corded one but sometimes in my trade to run a cord is too much hassle.

Just the other day I used the corded one to fix a leaky air handler AC coil.  From my experience a lot of them leak where the copper meats with steel. There is no way to braze the copper pipe because is right next to the steel frame. I used a multi tool to cut out the steel (could not find any other way) and I did ended up repairing the AC coil.

I understand that not a lot of people would be able to do this, but if I was to post a youtube video people would get it how easy it is with the right tool.

I also could have used it today having to patch ceiling sheet rock (water pipe burst) next to plastic water hoses is not easy with a drywall saw...plus it creates lost of dust due to the thickness of the saw blade. I had to use blankets to cover the floors in a wide area because sheet rock dust flies everywhere even having hack saw in one hand and a bucket to catch the dust. Not to mention how uncomfortable that is.

The multi tool blades are thin so they would create less dust and could even use the same piece being cut out to patch...i could have used it but finally...

Thanks dewalt. Can't wait.
