For you case-modders out there, the DREMEL Moto-Saw MS20-1/5 would be something awesome to own!
Before we proceed further on this tool that cuts away to almost anything, let’s have a look at their product video.
Out of the box is another box, this time it’s a plastic box. Don’t worry, it’s not the type that makes you look like a secret agent man. No no, it’s a simple box with the words DREMEL MOTO-SAW on it so everyone will think you’re a carpenter or something.
Within the box is the Moto-Saw itself, the name has no relations to Motorola. This motorized saw unit is modular with all the components neatly packed.
Here’s the main unit, it’s where the motor and saw piece is at. The gun handle allows you to hand hold it for works that does not require the base piece. The power switch and motor speed switch are placed on the grip for easy access.
This is the base piece, you mount this on a sturdy surface and place the saw unit on it, works great when you’re cutting surfaces or when your work will turn out best with some form of support.
Here are the other components that are in the box – this includes the clamp, the parallel guide attachment and the saw pieces (below)
â€¢ 2x General Purpose Wood Cutting Saw Blade (MS51)
â€¢ 2x Fine Wood Cutting Saw Blade (MS52)
â€¢ 1 x Metal Cutting Saw Blade (MS53)

Once assembled the Moto-saw looks like this.
The base-piece is securely clamped with the metal clamps provided.
Here’s the view of the Parallel Guide Attachment in place, it helps getting the best alignment possible to the saw.
And here I present to you my not-so-clever masterpieces as I fiddle around with the Moto-saw. It takes practice but I know I’m heading somewhere.
Assembly was easy, it took just about 15 minutes from unboxing to complete assembly. The power switch and the speed switch placed at the handle seems to be a little inconvenient to access when the Moto-saw is mounted on table.
I’m an absolute beginner when it comes to carpentry and the Moto-saw makes it a lot easier for people like myself to get deeper into the game, within a few hours I managed to get quite a hang of it though I must say I have a lot more to work on when it comes to precision.
The DREMEL Moto-saw comes with a few types of blades, choose your blades wisely before embarking on your projects. The metal cutting saw has the most teeth within a centimeter while the wood cutting blade are similar, with the fine wood blade having 7 teeth per centimeter while the general wood blade has 6.
The DREMEL Moto-Saw MS20-1/5 retails at RM 400. Product details are available at the official product page.
