I used to have a little Dremel circular saw to use in my Dremel tool. I didn't use it much but for some jobs it was just perfect. I also recognized it had the potential to be very dangerous. It was kept with my most important attachments.

One day I came home from work and went in my shop. I notice there is a tin can in the vice. The tin can has various cuts and peeled back panels. Next to it, on the bench, was my Dremel tool and my once precious saw. Now it was in sad, sad shape. It was warped and blued from overheating. A lot of the teeth were missing. I knew one of our pre teen Irish twin boys had done it but there was no resolving who. (Frankly, considering our history, I was just glad I wasn't at the emergency room - again.)

So I thought to replace it - wrong. No longer available. I guess experience proved my assessment of danger to Dremel and they discontinued it. I kept an eye out for a replacement in every Dremel display I came across, to no avail. I did finally find a replacement saw from another company. It's actually a better design. I don't remember where I got it for sure. I put it away in a drawer of my small parts cabinet and I included the product description sheet that came with it. Tells me everything about the product except who made it. I'm thinking I got it at the local Woodcrafters store.

The search occurred before internet, eBay and Amazon. That's right - manual. I only use it on a blue moon for very specific jobs, so I haven't looked lately.

Update: I just read some earlier entries in my blog and I found out I bought it at the '06 Toledo R/C Show. No hint of the vendor.
